I have so many great childhood memories growing up next door to the Goodenough Family on Highland Ave in Covington.
Mr. Goodenough would always take the kids camping up on the hill behind us and organize shows that the kids would put on for our parents in our backyards. Mrs.Goodenough made the best french toast ever in the morning after we would spend the night in their home. I do recall Mrs. Goodenough making a statement that she loved….the drums. Ann…her daughter,my best friend growing up on Highland. I am sorry to hear about your mother. I want to thank you all for such wonderful,unforgettable childhood memories.Prayers and love to all.

You have my sympathy for your family’s loss. Your grandparents–Lawrence & Clare–were favorites of all of my Dad Oliver’s kids. Your Mother and my sweet departed sister Phyllis were the same age. They played together and loved each other like first cousins do. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
