    So sad to hear of Gordon's passing. He brightened up my day when he came into the cafe, I loved talking about what book he was reading, his family and his job. I was honoured to hear about his amazing career as a policeman and working in the coroners office, with all the unbelievable situations he had encountered while working there. He spoke so highly and lovingly of his wife and two children, on a few occasions bringing in photos of them. He spoke about walking in the Lake district and making bread with Margaret, and the treasured time he spent with his children. He meant a lot to all of us at the cafe, including customers, even for those who didn't know him for very long. Truly a lovely, kind and respected man, who will very sadly be missed at the cafe and around Hexham too.
