To the Gordon family, many people mistakenly think that if we have faith in God, we shouldn't grieve at the loss of a significane other, but the truth is that its perfectly normal, natural and necessary to grieve. Grieving doesn't mean our faith is weak or we don't trust God enough. It means we are human. No one can define when, where nor how long to grieve. My family prayers are far the Gordon family. Jesus grieved. Remember "Jesus wept". John 11:17-36 Willie C. Bryant, Sr. And family

I am truly going to miss my uncle Tommy. He was always a positive force in my life growing up. He made me smile and laugh as I was growing up giving life tips that I remember even now. He told me about his service which he was proud of throughout his life, and I am grateful that I was able to tell him that I loved him in recent days. This is a hard time to lose the people you love.
