I wanted to let Kristi know that I am thinking of her and her family at this difficult time. There aren’t any words other than I love you girl.

The entire Goebel family are in our thoughts. My first visit to meet Kristi's family had me on Harry's motorcycle. It was my very first motorcycle ride. It scared the life out of me because it felt like we went so fast...speed limit was 70 and he followed it. Then Kristi, Corey, and I went to visit Harry as he was camping on a beach. He taught Corey where to keep his toothpick for safe keeping. I'm sure everyone already knew this but Corey learned that a toothpick is kept over the left ear. Thank you Goebel family for allowing us to get to know you. Our prayers are with you. Corey says, "Mr. Harry is in Heaven with Jesus."

The Goebels were our neighbors when we lived in Abilene. I remember Harry always working on the VW Rabbits that the girls drove. He was always quiet and I didn't get to know him as well as the girls because they babysat my boys a lot. I send my love and healing to Terry, Kristi and Jennifer.
