So sorry for your great loss.
Hortense was a great model for me as a friend, a neighbor and
for the short time we were in the study group together.
It was through her I was able to move to my condo in her
Her delightful sense of humor and zest for life showed me how
to age gracefully.

Hortense and all of the Goodman family are part if my fondest memories of my youth. Hortense always made me feel welcomed in her home. She was a good woman and had a life well live. My love to all the family.

I loved Hortense. We spent many enjoyable hours with “the girls” going out to eat (I was always the driver). Such fun times!

I adored Hortense and will always remember all our family get togethers growing up! Especially the Veiled Prophet Parade at Uncle Al’s.
My Love to you all!
