Dear Goodson Family, I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Mr. Goodson. He was a fine man who I got to know when he would come to meetings at Fayetteville Middle School. I don’t think he or your mother ever missed one. I’m sorry that I will not be there, I’ve got other commitments but I will say prayers for all of the family members. Please take care of yourselves!
