To the family and friends of Gordon Vance, I first met Gordon a year ago while we were working in the Home Builders Assoc. clean up and rebuild flood relief in Mingo County. Gordon and I felt as if we had know each other all our lives.We shared in values and ideals important in life. We both were being thankful for our good fortune by helping those devastated by the flood. He was in the process of installing a heating and air conditioning unit for Brenda and me. We'll talk about that at a later date when it's more convenient. I was shocked to hear of him illness and death.I was filled with joy to hear him say that he had given his heart to the Lord. Praise the lord that he didn't have to suffer long.We'll join him at the time the Lord has appointed. The Home Builders and I send sympathy and condolences to the family and friend. Paul McGuire
