Goodbye, Manny, and thanks

Manny Gordon, former District Forester and popular local personality, has died. He was 97.

Here is a beautiful retrospective of his life from WNEP.

Manny Gordon was part of my childhood - his on-air bumps on WNEP in the mornings helped make "Enjoy, Enjoy!" a part of my consciousness, and helped me to become more aware of and more deeply appreciate the beauty of the world around me.
