My condolences to Isabel and family. I knew Gordon for only a short time but enjoyed my time with him and Isabel.
He cared and loved very deeply for Isabel and his family and were always in the and forefront of his mind.
Every so often his sense of humour would show through and he loved talking about his farming days.
The “girl from the mountain” will miss her weekly visits.
