    I am so sorry to hear of Uncle Goodies passing. He was a good man, always smiling and friendly. I am sure that he is sitting beside Daddy with a fishing pole in his hands, laughing and talking about the good old days. Blessings.

    Uncle Goody,

    I will miss you very much. I have so many fond memories of going fishing with you. Dad always loved stopping in to see you and Bobby. I can remember back when I was a kid, eating those double decker moon pies at hill bros grocery. You, Bobby, and Phillip will always be in my heart and I look forward to the day we meet again. I love you Ryan

    I am so sorry to hear about uncle Goodie. He was a wonderful man. I never saw him angry. He was always happy. I have many pleasant memories of stopping by the store with my grandfather (his brother) and getting a Sundrop and a bag of peanuts when I was a kid. May you rest in peace and catch those fish in Heaven Uncle Goodie!!!

    I am sad for the loss of my good friend and classmate of ’58 Blanche High but I know he is at peace now. I always remember his pleasant personality and radiant smile. A truly good friend to all who knew him.
