To the entire Goodman family, I never had the pleasure of meeting Brother Elijah Goodman but based on what I hear he was an outstanding hard working family man, and a man of his community and the Jehovah Witnesses. Once again to the family God bless each and every one of you. With love sincerely Kelly C Parker...

Dear Goodman Family,
We have many good memories of Elijah. I wanted to share this picture of our trip to bethel with Eula and Elijah in 2019. This is lobby of Paterson NY. We all had such a good time; we'll enjoy association with Elijah again, in the new world to come, just around the corner. Rev.21:4.
Love, Saundra & Vivian Gainer

I was in Elijah’s car group on Saturday the day before Claire was born, so I was very pregnant, and he would tell the story of how we worked together in service, then I went to the mall and walked some more, and that night went into labor! Elijah and Eula were a wonderful example for our children growing up in the congregation.

Dear Sister Goodman and family,

Elijah was a wonderful brother and we are so looking forward to seeing him again, when Jesus and Jehovah call him back. Please take comfort in knowing Elijah is in the safest place he can be right now, Jehovah's Memory.

May Jehovah's loving arms continue to comfort you until you are reunited!

Much love,
Marietta Crapps

Eula and family, it was such a shock when I received a call about my sweet Brother Elijah. He was, always there for the us greeting us at the Kingdom Hall full of Joy and fun. He would always make me laugh. I would be out in the car with him and Eula and the rest of the sisters on field service. We would laugh, so much our stomach would hurt.
Eula, when things get quiet at home you just remember me Eileen, I will be in touch and make you smile again.
We will see him soon,.it won't be long!
I love you my sister, I will see you very soon.
