|Gordon, Kelly, Lana & Sheila
I was so sorry to hear of Goldie's death. I have very fond memories of her when I was growing up and living up in the woods above her house. One of my best memories is that she gave me my very first glass of orange juice. May God give you strength and comfort at this time.
