    The Gore family are in our hearts and prayers.....He will greatly be missed. He loved his family deeply and was very proud of them. I will always remember him tring to teach me to water ski, when I went out w/ his family in the boat at the Lake. Try to take comfort in knowing that he is in a better place and will be waiting for his family up in Heaven. Sincerly the Ward Family
