Cleve, if there is a hereafter I hope we will all be together someday.

Love, your sister Dee

Uncle Cleve, I am very proud of you and always looked up to you. I do remember that terrible day when Mom was told of your death. I want you to know that you were never forgotten and your sister has missed you terribly.

I guess that God needed a pilot to fly him somewhere and He sure did get a great one.

We have all missed you so much.

Love, your nephew, Pat

Dad, You are missed so much. My life would have been much better if you had been here to help me with your wisdom. I am sure you are among friends and with your Brother, and Mother and Father. Please keep a place for the rest of us, as we will all be there sooner or later. You have some awesome grandchildren, and the most beautiful great-grandchildren in the world, I am sure you watch over them as you have been watching over the rest of us.

Your Loving Son,
Robert William Gordon
