One Condolence for “GORHAM Berry”

  1. Nicole Roberts says:

    The Roberts Family in Camp Verde AZ, sends love and prayers to the Gorham family. We got only an evening to get to know him, but feel in our hearts the everlasting bond that threads our lives together. We know Berry will be preparing a mansion for those who love him, and still working on the other side. He was a great father, because the love I have seen from his children, and when I watched BJ look at her husband, I knew she loved him so.
