My deepest condolences Matthew. I was Ev & Sharlene’s sister in Christ and Eucharist Minister from our church. They were both Christians with a deep faith. The one thing that Ev told me was always proclaim that our biggest accomplishment in life is that we were children of God. We are here to share the message of Jesus. Ev will be missed. Ev was always so proud of you, you were a wonderful caregiver, and he loved you very much. My prayer for you is to go forward and live the life that God has laid out for you. Peace & love, Ann Morrocco, St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Canonsburg PA 15317
So sorry to hear of Mr. Gordon’s passing. I was also a member at St. Paul’s years back and knew Ev and Sharlene. They were the nicest people and I enjoyed talking with them after church on Sundays. He will be missed. My deepest sympathies to his family.
Wonderful man ! We will him in our Congregation!
We were students at Eastport School with his brother Neal.
