My thoughts and prayers to Marie on the passing of such a great neighbor growing up on John Street- we the neighborhood children spent a lot of time at the Goodwin barn helping Ray with the pigs- great memories!! Rest in Peace dear Ray you were a true inspiration to our growing up years thankyou for ALL the mentoring to a great bunch of John Street children!!! Will never forget you!!

Dear Marie: I’m so sorry for your loss. I know you will miss him very much after being together so many years. I knew him best as Margery’s big brother when we were young. He was always kind and well-liked, a very nice man! You have many good memories that are yours to keep and I’m hoping you find comfort knowing that others care about you! Sincerely, Shirley Pokornik
