    I cherish all the sweet memories that I have of my cousin “Gordy”. The O’Bryan family, Gordy and Nancy, Uncle Gordon, Aunt Nell, Tony, Pat and Danny have always been, and will forever be, precious to me. Gordy was always loving, fun, genuine and a real jokester! I smile when I remember Gordy! My heart is breaking for each of you. It does bring joy to me to think of the reunion in heaven now, with my Mom, Uncle Gordon, Aunt Nell and all of the O’Bryans who are there welcoming Gordy home!! I love you all and will pray for The Holy Spirit to comfort you. 🙏

    Nancy, my heart is heavy and I mourn with you in the loss of Gordy. And as I recall so many good memories, from childhood and many family times together, I rejoice in knowing that Gordy loved Jesus and is resting securely in His arms this day. May the Holy Spirit comfort you and all of your family with His peace, turning your morning into joy, oh, what a family reunion it will be when we gather together in heaven at last!! Don and I love you all and will keep you close in our prayers!
