Dear Carolyn. I just found out about Gordon’s homegoing. I think you know that you both had a special place in my heart. From my first year of Bible school until working with you both for world conference. I loved his humour and his love for the lord. Praying for you

Dear Caroline and family, I was a Bible college classmate of Gordon’s at NBC (now Vanguard). I always appreciated and respected Gordon during our college days and throughout the ministry years. We connected from time to time, as pastors do, and Gordon was always a first class gentleman and the consummate pastor. Please accept my heartfelt condolences. May the peace of God uphold you during these days. Greg Foley

Gordon was a father and friend with a great sense of humour 24/7. He was passionate about serving God and His people. He did this day in day out. He showed me true love (father – son love), kindness, care, true humility, gentleness, patience, a few but to mention.

My sincere condolences Auntie Carol and your dear family.
