Gordon, you are gone from me too soon my husband. I look for you daily but you're not there. Alex looks for you too as if you were coming through the front door. I miss your smile, your jokes, your love. We will be reunited some day, along with all the pups. All my love till then...

We send our love and condolences to Cynthia and to everyone who knew Gordon. He was a kind soul, and understood how vital it is to respect animals and to combat their abuse. Animals need all the friends they can get, and Gordon will be sorely missed. Wishing for happy memories and strength to his family and friends in this time of loss.

Please accept my condolences for the passing of Gordon. There is hope though, as the Almighty has arranged for the resurrection in the future. He promises, "... There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous." (Acts 24:15)

I hope you find these few words comforting and provide motivation to prepare for the new world of God's making. (John 17:3)
