Mr.Gordy......you give me hope that my father is not just gone; and that angels do in deed exist. If you could, send my love to my father. I hope you are at peace. RIP

Hi Mr Gordy, I have been hearing the great thing you did by looking over Heidi. Though I truly wish that you would visit me, as I have never seen/experienced any ghostly sightings

Mr. Gordy, You watched over Heidi even in the past life. You were a great guy, or so I read. May you forever rest in peace <3
