  6. Ed Gordon says:

    I regret, but fully understand due to COVID-19, not being able to personally extend my condolences to Aunt Marylin with the loss of her beloved husband, my Uncle Dick. I also want to pass along condolences to all of Dick’s children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren who will certainly miss him dearly. My best memories of Uncle Dick go back to the 1960’s when he took mom, dad and me fishing on his boat in Lake Erie and the excitement of pulling up 2 perch at a time on a spreader rig. I also appreciate all the times he and Marylin would visit mom in her later years. May the Lord quickly welcome Dick into Heaven and comfort his survivors.
