Joan, I guess we met for the first time at the reunion.  I'm one of the obnixious little girls that gave Gordon such a bad time during grade school.  He really had to put up with us.  But we did mellow out and were good friends after that time.  I remember him as a sweet, gentle man.  I'm sure you had a good life with him.  I can share some tears along with you.  Marilyn Peterson Bills

I'm so glad that I had a good long visit with Gordon and you, Joan, at the informal gathering that first day. You probably can't keep us all straight.  I was intrigued in reading his obituary and very impressed with his outstanding career.  I was also impressed that you made the trip while dealing with oxygen tanks.  It's a bittersweet time of life as the aging process takes its toll, but it sounds as if you had a rich life as a couple and as a family.  God's Blessings, Norma Turner Speer
