Thank you to all those who originally donated on this page to support Peggy and Gordon with the loss of their home due to fire. This page has now been updated to a memorial fund page.
On April 14th we lost a husband, a father (of various manifestations grand, great grand, foster, and father to some who are fatherless), our friend, our mentor and our patriarch. He made a powerful impact on all who knew him and if you knew him you know of his love and his affection fuelled by his faith in Jesus Christ.
This was a senseless event, though the only thing that makes sense is to honor Gord by loving others just as his Jesus did. We regard his attacker and his family with love, not hostility as Jesus loved those who nailed him to the cross. We are sad beyond description and we crave your prayers but we know God is good and we put our trust in him just like our father Gordon did. Many knew him as Poppa and many went to bed dreaming of him last night. Thank you for your care in this time of loss. Peggy is heartbroken but strong like a tower.
All funds raised here will go directly to Peggy. Peggy is still living in very temporary housing. At this point funds have only been used to manage the day-to-day costs including clothing, replacing things like dishes, etc. Peggy now faces the task of finding a more permanent home including furnishing it, now without Gordon. Funds will still be used for home furnishings and managing the expenses of maintaining a temporary household and building a permanent household.
On behalf of the family, we thank you for your support. - Nicolette ( Gordon and Peggy's Granddaughter)
