Bev, Gordie and Family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this sad time. Gord was the world to you, and to us, a giant of a man, giant heart, kind beyond belief, generous to a fault, loyal to family and friends, helpful in every way possible, an outstanding neighbour and a true and wonderful friend. We will miss him terribly but have so many wonderful memories of him that time cannot diminish. Love Janice & Scott
