    My life has been blessed for having known true Charles E Gordon. Whether he was talking to his kids and his grandkids Santa’s great-grandkids are to a hundred people praising is Lord he was one and the same. You done good by him Tammy. Have your cry but hold your head high as you follow in your grandparents and parents footsteps. I’m glad I had the honor to be his son-in-law for short while.
