    Dear Amy and family,

    I was so sorry to see the obituary for Gordon in the paper yesterday. Although we have lost touch over the past 20+ years, Gordon was one of ‘the good guys.’ In my experience of him, he really cared about urban planning. I will always remember his lightening-quick mind and wit. He taught me a lot about the politics of planning and how to be a good advocate for the ideas I beleived in.

    Goodbye, Gordon – safe travel.
