A Special Thanks

My Dear Mississippi Elks family, On behalf of my entire family, I would like to thank you all for your kind words of condolence, your thoughts and your prayers. We have been overwhelmed by the love and respect that has been shown for Mike. He was a great Elk but an even better husband and father. From attending the funeral from lodges far away, to special memorials honoring his name, to generous donations made to ENF in his memory, your gestures have been as great as the size of Mike's heart of Elkdom. Again, our family would like to express our sincere appreciation for all you have done. To Our Absent Mike! Sincerely, Bonnie Gordon
