Today Sunday 9th of July 2017, several members of Shoestring and the Mobo group made their way across to Rojales crematorium to pay their respects to Gordon's wife Winnie and her family after the sudden passing of Gordon on Friday. The funeral was well attended by family and friends of Gordon with some having to stand in the reception hallway as all the seating was full. The service was carried out in both Spanish and English and with a slide show presentation of photos from throughout Gordon's life. The first photo was very striking of a young Sergeant in his army uniform smiling broadly and ready to take on the world. Other photos went through various stages of his army career and very smart he was, and then onto his meeting with Winnie to marriage and then to his children and then to his grandchildren, obviously his pride and joy. During the service his many activities were mentioned and of course Shoestring and SAMM were part of his interests. Special mention was to Kath and Phil who probably sailed the most often with Gordon in the recent times. Kath presented a condolence card to Winnie on behalf of all Shoestring members as did Paul on behalf of SAMM.
