Gordon shared his acronyms with us as often as he could. He made us think, he made us laugh he made us use our creativity. He will never be forgotten.

One last time, from me...for Gordon!


God's Garden

God looked around his garden
and He saw an empty place
He looked down upon the Earth
and saw your tired face

He put His arms around you
and lifted you to rest
God's garden must be beautiful
He always takes the best

He knew that you were suffering
He knew you were in pain
He knew that you never
get well on Earth again

He saw the road was getting rough
and the hills were hard to climb
So he cloesd your weary lids
and whispered "Peace be thine"

It broke our hearts to lose you
but you didn't go alone
For part of us went with you
the day God called you home

In Our Hearts
We thought of you with love today
But that is nothing new
We thought about you yesterday
And days before that too

We think of you in silence
We often speak your name
Now all we have are memories
And your picture in a frame

Your memory is our keepsake
With which we’ll never part
God has you in his keeping
We have you in our hearts.

When you were born, an angel smiled,

As you became a child, an angel sat on your shoulder

When you became an adult, an angel held your hand 

As you grew old, an angel walked down the road with you,

And, when you died, another angel got their wings.
