Sorry to read about the passing of Herb. I have prepared his tax returns for many years. I enjoyed our annual meetings over the years. He was very friendly and warm to me and I will miss seeing him.

Sue, Jim, Bill & Kids:
I'm so very sorry for your loss. I will always remember Mr. Goodwyn as a warm and friendly man with a huge smile that never stopped! He's one of those people who, even though I haven't seen him in a long time, the mention of his name brings a vivid image to mind. Bill, so much of his spirit and personality were a part of you when we were growing up. Even though he is no longer physically on earth, I've no doubt he'll be with you all the rest of your days!
Love you,
Carol Elzinga Dicksen

The Beasleys were saddened to learn of your family's loss. We met Mr. Goodwyn a few times over the years, and always found him to be warm and gracious, full of humor and life. As several others have posted in this guestbook: He was a good man.

We were all very lucky to have such a loving man in our lives. I will never forget his kind nature and sense of humor; he had the most wonderful laugh. He had this in common with his wife, Edythe. I have many happy memories with my grandpa; his immense impact on my life will not be forgotten.

It was always nice working with such supportive parents. We knew that if we needed something, we could count on the Goodwins because they treasured their children. In recent years we would wave at Herb working outside. He would always respond with his huge bright smile. It's that light that will never dim as long as the family continues.

To the Herb Goodwyn family: We are so sorry for the loss of Herb and our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. He was kind, witty, hard-working and a wonderful family man. We enjoyed his friendship and will miss him. THE LENAHANS

It takes all kinds of people to make this world go around. Your dad was one of the good guys.
