I'm so sorry to hear about Gordon's passing.  I remember when he & Garry started school in the first grade in the old "Number 8" school by the Texas Eastern Pump Stations...(although the Pump Stations hadn't yet been built way back then).  I was in the 2nd grade at the time, and the Kearby family goes back as good friends of our family long before Gordon, Garry or I were ever born.

My deepest sympathy to the entire family.  May God bless each of you.
