The Goodman Family
Our deepest sympathies for the loss of your Father. I recall he was always gracious and a good man. He invited my father Pete and my sisters to his cottage for a dinner of splake, his special potatoes and strawberry shortcake. He got spiffied up for the occasion too. I don’t remember a time where my Dad didn’t spend time with Goodie or that he would join us for dinner on our visits to Calumet. He will be thought of and remembered with the fondest of memories.

Family of Junior Goodman:
Our sincere sympathy for the passing of your father, Junior! The Jacob Johnson family of Caledonia Street in Calumet were long-time friends of the Goodmans! Whenever we would meet Junior in the grocery store it would bring back memories of times gone by. It was always nice to see him. I'm sure he is dancing in heaven! Take Care and God Bless you all!
Sincerely, Barbara and Don Effinger
