Mrs. Goodenough & family, You are all in my thoughts and prayers. I grew up knowing Mr. Goodenough has a kind, giving person. He always had something that needed to be done, but would always take time to help a friend or neighbor in need. May God provide peace and comfort during this difficult time.
