REMEMBERING . . .

in this rainy, yellow, gold changing fallish, melancholy time . . . I have collected a bunch of pictures
from our albums. I know many of you don’t even know who this “Gary Chap” is/was . . .

Gary is my late husband, and “dad” to our children, Scott Gordon and Sue Guinon. After my most recent post, some of you sent me questions asking about Gary. I realized then, that I have met some new friends since I had posted about him previously.

Yes , it was so sad, shocking, devastating . . . to say the very least. Gary was out with friends for a jog run and collapsed at the end of the run of a massive coronary. He was 41 and so was I. He had had no heart problems to our knowledge. Healthy, athletic, active, much loved man.

Gary Kay Gordon
February 13, 1939 - October 14, 1980

*******
sorry for this mix match picture collection . . .
we loved boating, sailing, skiing, camping . . .
we loved life, our family, our friends . . .
Update : I have had to delete a few pics . . . posting way too large.

Gary is always in your hearts.
I remember these pictures from years past, and I know you all miss him so.
Thinking of you and your kiddo's and I think it's nice that you all have such fond and warm memories of Gary. I always have the impression that he must have been quite a wonderful guy!

Life is short and unpredictable. We all never know when we will be here no more. Memories are cherished things.

I'm glad you have so many treasured memories of Gary, even though his time on this earth was far too short.

I have a lot of very similar pictures. Motor boat instead of sailboat. Water skis instead of snow skis.. Camping was the same except it was raining. Melancholy for sure. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for some other magnificent post. Where else could anyone get that type of information in such an ideal means of writing? I have a presentation subsequent week, and I am at the look for such information.

Spot on with this write-up, I actually assume this website needs rather more consideration. I’ll in all probability be once more to learn far more, thanks for that info. betfair online casino
