Mr. Gore was an inspiring role model. I will always admire his commitment to teaching and learning and am thankful to have learned from him during my years in Cleveland. Thanks to his so called “special blend,” I have a great appreciation for the versatility of ice tea.! Love you Mr. Gore!—Michelle Kanu

I was so sorry to hear of the passing of my cousin, Richard Gore. Dorothy and children, you all are in my prayers. One of my fondest childhood memories is a camping trip in the mountains that Richard, Dorothy, and Addie took me on in the 1960's. it was a lovely service. I felt the love and respect that poured out of the speakers. We in North Carolina will continue to think of you.

I feel honored to have received the blessing of the love, resolve, loyalty, and all around goodness that Mr. Gore bestowed upon all those he touched, in my case through his son, James. I can't imagine a better friend than James, and I know he modeled his best self after his dear dad. My heard goes out to the whole extended Gore family, and I hope amidst the inevitable sadness that you can also celebrate with joy the ways he made all of our lives better.

Richard was a highly regarded teacher and administrator in the Cleveland Schools. I worked with him for more than 22 years at the headquarters office and continued our associations in many "retirement" groups" after that, and found t him to be proactive and positive. My deepest sympathy to all of his family.

I was saddened to hear of the loss of Richard Gore. I met the Gores through a family member. It was also a pleasure even more to meet a fellow Viking of Elizabeth City State University. Richard and Dorothy were always very kind and especially they loved their family and friends. Tommy and I so appreciated their Christmas cards. I kind of fell behind keeping up with them during the sickness of my husband. I pray for peace and blessing for you and your family as you go through this loss. 55 years was a wonderful blessing in itself. You have your family, friends and especially God to carry you on! Blessings to you; Alicia Campbell
