So sorry for your loss Billie! I'll always remember your Mother being a good friend to my Mom at Heritage Woods.
I had the pleasure of praying with Mrs. Goff every Sunday while she was at the Garden's. Most Sundays she did not feel up to attending service, but we shared prayer with her. Andi Malone
My condolences to you, Billie Don and Tim, in your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
She was one of the finest ladies of Xenia when I worked at Gauger Insurance. She would come in and meet of the morning with several other wonderful ladies in Xenia for coffee and then in the afternoon about 2 pm for a cool or hot drink depending on the weather, so many have left Xenia but they will never be forgotten.
Billie, Tim, and family - You have our deepest sympathy on the passing of your Mom. I have fond memories of our family gatherings at Thanksgiving and of William and LaDonne's music at Powers. May God's peace surround you. Love and prayers to you all.
I have fond memories of your parents taking the neighbor kids to vacation bible school. They were both such sweet people. Sorry for your loss.
