Louanne, Randy & Frank-
I was so very sorry for hear of Mrs. Goodwin's passing; she was such a kind, sweet lady; I know she will certainly be missed by all.
I didn't find out about the arrangements until the day of the service or I would have tried to come in person.
Please know that I am thinking of you all, praying that God will comfort through these difficult times, and remember you will always have the wonderful memories.
Kim Medlin (you may remember me as Louanne's friend..)
