“Thanks to my kinesiology background, I have been academically successful in nursing school, being able to reason like a scientist . . . You taught me to see the human behind the science, to see God’s hand at work even in the small things . . . Gordon made me a much more rounded person, able to think more philosophically and see each of my patients as God’s children . . . I am a better nurse because of you all and I am forever grateful to you for pushing me, believing in me and giving me a love of science and a passion to help others.”
