From Floyd and Carla Ransom:
R.I.P. Gordon. You made going to work easy knowing I would see your smiling, sarcastic face. The jokes, the laughs, the things you made certain people believe when everyone else knew otherwise. I loved our chats while loading out of the cellars and harvesting. I have missed you over the years. It makes my heart smile knowing you were happy and in the end surrounded by family that loved you. Keep the stars shining brightly for us looking up and saying we miss you. Until we meet again.
