Farewell, Gordon Laing 1951-2013

by Jan Yuill

Gordon Laing 1951-2013Dear Gordon,

I did not know that you were ill. It breaks my heart to think I took it for granted that our paths would cross again at some time. And now they never will.

When I showed Abby the obituary from the paper, she was crushed too. The news is still sinking in. We hardly knew you, but you touched our lives. Your gentle, listening, open, and caring way with the people around you, well, I can hardly believe you are gone. You inspired people. Loved people. Encouraged people. Welcomed people. We miss you.

I bless Susan and all your family, friends, neighbours, and colleagues.

Take care, Wonderful Man.
