This man was more than just a great grandfather to me. He raised me since I was born. He will always be remembered by me as my daddy, and what a great one at that. I think of him every single day. I look at our pictures we had togeether and continue to talk to him as if he was there with me. I miss our card games, fishing trips, our long rides to nowhere. I miss you callin me monkey and telling me to watch what im doing so i don't fall. I miss golden caral everyday, and our corn bread and milk. I miss him more than anything. I will make him proud in every decision I choose. Yatcheekohum poppy. You never really left my side, just my vision.

It was such a pleasure to meet and visit with Mr & Mrs. Goode when they came out to visit our sod farm. It was so funny to find out there were boys not only the girls in the Goode family as my husband & I always thought. He shared with me the memories of his wonderful family growing up & how such a large family never spoke a cross word to each other. I only had the pleasure of talking with him twice which is unfortunate, I always looked forward to he & Mrs. Goode
dropping by for another visit with more of his family stories while they were just out riding around as he put it.
My heart goes out to his family
during this time. For as much as you loved him he felt the same about you.

We are so very sorry to hear of Roger's passing. He always had a kind word and a twinkle in his eye. We know he will be sorely missed by his family and friends. Regards, Tom & Karin Arney

I remember when my dad passed away that Uncle Bailey would come around often to check on me and my mom. He said that my dad asked him to watch out for us if anything happened to him. He sure did keep his word. We went down to his home in Crystal River often. He and Aunt Jeanie treated us wonderfully. I will miss you dearly!
