      Hi David,
      I just wanted to let you know that my Uncle Gordon (Gordon Eldon Marshall) died Monday August 29, 2005. He had a quick battle with cancer. I just thought you'd like to know because you had said before that you'd been in contact with him regarding the Marshall family tree and so that you can also update your records.
      Sincerely,
      Julie Sampson

      David,
      Gordon died in Lowell, Ionia County, Michigan. We don't have any details on his burial...it all depends on whether my cousin Ross will be able to make it home (He's in the Navy and he'd just gone back to his submarine after an emergency medical leave). If Ross isn't able to make it home for the funeral, Gordon's ashes will be saved until the time that Ross can be there.
      I'm happy to hear your wife is doing so well after her ordeal. We'll keep you both in our prayers.
      Julie
