Goodmans created a family in their neighborhood. They loved us, our kids, and our animals and we loved them back. As a result, they became family and everyone who lives there present or lived there in the past is connected by them. What a blessing in all our lives!

Fred and Jean were more than neighbors. They are dear friends, and grandparents to us and our children. Every day, Fred would raise the American flag in the morning, and put her to sleep in the evening after a proper salute. We salute you, Fred for the amazing and admirable life that you lived, and the wonderful memories that you have given us. You are loved and will be greatly missed. Rest in peace, Grandpa Fred...
