Cindy and Chuck Goodin welcomed me and so many other college students into their home when I was at at Geneva College. My time as a college student was so blessed by the Goodin family and the Sunday night youth meetings, when we students joined the Goodins to watch ice skating or sports and had popcorn or cookies and cocoa together.

My prayers are with you, their daughters, sons-in-law and grandchildren; my comfort is that another saint has gone before us to blessed peace.

"In that great, getting-up morning, what a day of rejoicing that will be! When we all see Jesus, we'll sing and shout the victory!"

So sorry to hear, remembering all those days in Washington, Pa., at the pool, and her wonderful baked beans, and "whoopsie doopsie, AMEN" We all had great memories, and movies to remind us. Love to all, Paul in FLORIDA

Sorry for your loss. I was blessed enough to work alongside Ms. Goodin at the Hallmark store right out of high school. She was a sweet, kind, gentle and wonderful guiding light to me and she truly took great pride in showing me everything. She will be missed.
