I've known the Goode family for at least 40 years or more. She was a great woman and always seemed happy, loving and caring. She loved children. I'm going to miss her walking through the neighborhood,
But now she is walking through heaven with her Lord and with her husband!

We were so saddened to hear of Ms. Goode's passing. She was a wonderful friend and neighbor to us for many years. Our children had the blessing of being in her care on occasion, and playing with the other sweet babies she cared for. They will always remember her "cool-pop" treats that she shared (especially banana!). We have thought of her often over the years and will sadly miss her. God bless her family and hugs to you all.
