Not sure what to say?

To my second cousins, Cathy, John, and Tom and your families: I was looking for an obituary on Legacy.com and I chanced upon your mother's obituary. Because I am a believer, I am calling this "divine providence". I have always called your mother, Mary Alice, because that is what my father, Solomon Goff, called her. I belief that she preferred being addressed as "Mary." Mary and I were both very active in searching for our Goff genealogy, so I visited her and Bob...

I went to graduate school with Mary and ten plus years later we worked together at Buckeye Youth Center.
I remember her as a caring sensitive person who wanted the best for the youth we serviced. Yes, her wonderful smile is remembered. Glad to know she lived in the mist of nature's beauty as she often talked about Wyoming and her family. Much love to all of you.

I recall your Mom from my first year teaching in 1962 at West Mound School. Your parents were great people. When my first set of parent-teacher conferences occurred, your Mom came with pad and pencil and made notes on every thing I said. At the time I was truly nervous.

Cathy, John and Tom. Your Mom is a kind and intelligent person who was always fun to talk to. My life was made richer by knowing her, getting to know her better in recent years, and by knowing your whole family! I'm thinking of you at this tough time. Sending Love.

Our condolences to your family during this difficult time. May you find comfort in the words found at John 11:24, 25, a promise of seeing your loved one again.

Dear Cathy, Mary & Nick, I am sorry for the loss of your mom, grandmother, and mother-in-law. She will always be with you in your heart and mind. May your hearts be filled with comfort and peace. You are in my thoughts. Love, Nina
