  1. Our thoughts and prayers are with Rene, Eric and Adrienne at this time. All of my memories of Uncle Gordon are of his amazing kindness. And I still remember his beautiful paintings. He is at rest now in Paradise with Aunt Irene and beloved family members. We will all be reunited one day. May Gods comfort provide peace to his dear family.

    Love & Blessings,
    Diane and Carlos Lopez
