It was Gordon’s birthday yesterday. He would have been 66. Though it has been 14 years since he returned to the Lord, my darling brother is still very much with us in our hearts and minds.
We remember him for the many ways in which he touched our lives, especially when he took to entertaining us with a few songs…while his talented piano partner – Julie – tinkled on the ivories.
Whether it was a toe-tapping ‘New York New York’, a romantic ‘J’attendrai’ in fluent French or a religious ‘Rosa Mystica’, we loved his handsome voice and style.
In 1995, I dabbled in caricature drawing and was inspired to capture Gordon and Julie in action. I thought it would be the best way to remember the good times with my talented brother by sharing this piece of artwork today.
Happy Birthday Gordon. We miss and love you.
