Dr. Gordon was my Dr. for all four of my kids. I needed to make an appointment over the weekend and discovered that he had passed on. I knew that he had been diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's but he went fast. He delivered Myra less that 18 months ago. I will miss him. My heart goes out to his family and friends.

Nathan was one of the last babies he delivered. He was such a sweet guy; when Nathan was born it was him, and not Dr. Judd, that came in to talk to us about everything that was going on. He was really sweet and sat with us for over an hour helping us come to grips that our 3 day old baby was needing jaw surgery, heart surgery, cleft surgery... when we weren't prediagnosed. There aren't too many doctors like him.

So sorry that he's gone. It's amazing how attached you get to people like that. We had our last PT visit from a guy that worked with her and jaden as they are making cut-backs and having one person do all of Heber and PC and I cried when he left. They play a big role in the lives of our most precious. At least he's 'home' and at peace. Hang in there! :)
