Condolences Left For Gordon Holcomb
I considered it a privilege to know Gordon. He brightened my day when he visited the bank. My thoughts and prayers go out to his wife and family.

My deepest sorrow to the family for a life that ended too soon, during Bible times the Shunammite woman leaped for joy when her loved one was resurrected to life again on earth -2Kings 4:32-37, and when Lazarus was resurrected, no doubt his sisters Mary and Martha leaped for joy – John 11: 43, 44. We too, will soon leap for joy when we are reunited with our loved ones on a paradise earth with the prospect of eternal life and no resident will say: I am sick –John 5:27-29; Psalms 37:11 29; Isaiah 33:24; Revelation 21:3, 4.
