I am sorry to hear of the passing of Brother Goodwin. He was our faithful home teacher for many of my teen years in Roy. Also he was my Sunday School teacher for many years. Brother Goodwin was always kind and faithful. He set a good example for us as he taught by word and deed. He always has had a smile and a kind word for everyone. My the Lord's richest blessing be with you, Sister Goodwin, and your family at this time. Brother Goodwin will be missed.

I always loved hanging out at Grandpa's house. I remember him teaching me to be a sharp shooter with his BB Gun. Man that was fun! And I was always amazed at his tricks - like when he would pretend to blow into his thumb to inflate his bicep. I always wondered how he did that! I am blessed to have had such a great Grandpa and that my kids were able to meet him. We all have fond memories of him. We will miss you Grandpa and we love you.

There are may Memories I have of my brother,Clyde. He was always funny. When we did dishes, yes he did dishes when he was about 14 and I was 5, he would wash and I would dry. To make it fun for me he would become an Ogre on a bridge. I was supposed rinse and dry the dish before he could get the next one ready or he would growl and scare me. It worked! (No dish washers in 1935.) Once in a while I would take a sack lunch up to the golf course, where he played golf. And sometimes he would take me for a ride ride on the handle bar of his bike. That was so much fun!The best memory is when he had to take me to my older sisters house for Christmas Eve because mother & dad were going out. It was in walking distance. so he held my hand and all the time we were walking he would point to the North Star and tell me the Story of Jesus' Birth. I loved him so much. Gonna Miss him. But glad he is with the Lord. At rest. It's a Miracle.
