  1. Our Loss is heavens gain.

    Written by: Dorothy

    When I was 23 and had been having problems for years he was the first Doctor to delve into the reason why. I had to have major surgery that saved my life . Over the years I would often speak of him and how if I hadn’t seen this wonderful Doctor the outcome could have been truly different. My sincere sympathy to the family for your loss and to the community he touched. He will be held in all our hearts and in heaven dearly.

  2. We are so sorry to hear about Dr. Lord’s passing. I remember him so well from the years we were neighbor’s of Jackie’s when they lived in Dunedin. You are all remembered in our thoughts and prayers. He passed away the same day as my dad…I am sure they are together in Heaven sharing wonderful memories of their loving families. God Bless you all.

  3. Peace be with you, Dad. I’m comforted knowing you’re watching over me. Your loving daughter, Shari.

    Dearest Dad,
    There are no words to convey how much you meant to us and how much you are missed. Even though we are so sad now, we know the Angels are dancing with you in Heaven and you are surrounded by family and friends. We will take care of Mom till you are together again. We will never forget how you loved us all unconditionally, even when we didn’t deserve to be loved, and how your actions and kindness taught us how to be better, gentler, kinder, and more compassionate people. The world was a better place by you being in it but GOD needed you back home. We will never forget you and will love you to the moon and back..All our love, Jackie and Gordon and family
