I was born on 17 May 1986, in Baltimore, Maryland, to the proud parents of
Nathan (Jimmy) and Kim Gordon.
I had a good life being reared by my Loving and hardworking Mother
Kim, my Granny (Mary Blue) and my Big Brother Nathan. Although I was older
than my little sister N akeisha, she kinda thought that she had a hand in raising
me too ... I loved them so much, and Love them still.
My Granny always told me to serve The Lord and finish school (as ALL of
her Grands did), and I did just what she said to do. I graduated and Granny
was an Angel in attendance at my High School Graduation, I felt her presence
there. I worked as a bricklayer and was great and growing greater at my craft. I
enjoyed the building concept of watching the project begin and finish, and
knowing that my work was a part of that.
I accepted the Lord as my Personal Savior., and was baptized at Mount
Pleasant Church and Ministry under the Leadership of Bishop Clifford M.
Johnson, [r .. I love reading God's Word (The Bible), and sharing His Word with
anyone. His Words Are All Truth, The Best Book Ever!!! He Loved, Forgave and
promised me a new life in heaven with Him.
Hold on someone's coming that I've never met. It is the one called Man
Daddy (My maternal grandfather Dan Blue) he is smiling and says, "Welcome
Home Grandson." ... Wait a minute, here comes Granny, I know that smile.
Wow, she hit me on my arm" and hard too, now she is hugging me so tight with
her Granny grip. I don't want her to ever let me go.
OMG, that's my Big Brother hollering and running full speed towards me,
and he -grabs me while Granny is still holding me too. I don't want them to let
go. Aunt Cynt (Cynthia ), is standing there smiling and crying. I told her not to
cry because I am good now. She said she was crying because she knew that too.

I told them give me a minute because I needed to finish this letter to and
for the family.
Mom, Oh My God! You were right about everything. You loved me
unconditionally and sincerely. You made me laugh, made me cry at times, made
me think and helped to make me a man. Think about the times we laughed,
fussed and then laughed together. You are the Best Mom in the World and Best
Friend to Me. Trust in God as you told me to do. Pray, as you and Granny
taught me, and continue to Love. You have so much more Love to give ... and
Amiya, you are my firstborn. I was so happy when you were born. I
always wanted all the best for you. I tried my best, and I gave all of my wants
for you over to God. I trusted that He would be all that you ever needed and
more that I could ever provide. Trust God and He will direct your paths. Think
of me of the times when I made you laugh, fuss or roll your eyes. Whenever you
look at your reflections, you will see me. Please know that I am good, and I will
Always and forever Love You!
Gia, you are my newest blessing. How I wish I could be there as you grow
and understand the wonders of this Universe. I will be there always in Spirit.
Trust God every day and always. He will direct your Paths. Whenever you look
at your reflections, you will see me .. Please know that I am good, and I will
Always and forever Love You!
Nakeisha, my baby Sister. I Love You So Much! That Love will never die.
We have been through storms of life together, and together we made it through.
Trust God that He will give you the strength to get through this storm. You have
the most beautiful daughter, my niece Kenleeh. Make sure when she calls my
name she is correctly pronouncing it with her "Baltimore" accent not her
"French" accent (Antoine vs AN /\TWan).

Lil Nathan, I Love You Man. I wanted to be there for you more ... so many
times. It was a struggle for me because I missed your Dad so much too. But I
asked God to watch over you and provide all that you needed. I called the other
day to take you swimming, and your Mom said that I would have to go to
Australia to get you. I thought about it, and said, "God is good". God will
continue to provide all of your needs. Always remember you are loved, and you
have an army of angels watching over you.
Aunt Cheryl, I Love you to the moon and back. I called you day and night
and you would listen and help me. You called to check on me and told me to
trust in God and He would be there for me always, forgiving and loving me,
unconditionally. You know that I Love the Lord and accepted His pardon of my
sins, and was baptized in His Name. You know that I am alright! I Love You
Aunt Cheryl, and you were right! God has prepared a place for me.
Family, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Nieces, Nephews and "You know who you
are", just wanted to say, "I'm good ... I'm real good". I Love the Lord, I know the
Lord, and I accepted the Lord as my Personal Savior.
I Loved You All, even if I didn't say it every time I saw you, God knew my
heart. I prayed for my family, and I trust that God will continue to pour you out
blessings just like God did for me. "Just pray about it," my favorite words.
I'm good, I'm blessed ... I'm home.
"OK Granny!" Well, Granny wants to show me her place before I see mine,
and she has prepared a feast for me (..And I'm hungry too). The Angels just
brought my beautiful Crown and Robe (designed by God), and it fits perfectly.
I am so grateful that I know The Lord. Please take the time to get to know
God for yourself. He forgives, He Loves and He Saves.
