Mr. Gordon,Donna and family, I am so sorry for your loss, I know your hearts are broken. What a blessing to know that Mrs. Gordon will suffer no more, Alzheimer's traps our loved ones inside their own bodies, and takes them from us. Mother has it also, so I know what you all have lived through the past few years, it just doesn't seem fair, for someone you love to have to live with this horrible disease. Please know you are all in my prayers. Donna, I will be thinking of you daily, as I know you are taking care of your Daddy also. May God be with you, and give you the strength to get trough each day. Love, Pam Pittman ( Southern Auto Parts)
