Dear Nikki, Patti, and Steve: We are so sorry for your loss. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with each of you throughout the time. We feel so honored and blessed to have been able to see Mr. Goad receive his Masonic Award this past Fall. He was a real sweetheart and it was very obvious how much he loved his family. Many hugs and prayers. May God hold all of you in the palm of His hand. Much love: Mike, Lynn, Lauryn, and Mallory Buschhaus
