Virginia am so sorry for your loss. Goldie was a wonderful person. God only takes the best. You have a special angel looking over you as she always did.
God Bless you and your family
So sorry for your loss. I remember Goldie as a child. I went with my mother to her house to Ladies Aide meetings where they sewed quilts.
Sympathy to her family.
Goldie was a dear lady and a wonderful mom. I met her through Chuck many years ago and enjoyed being able to drop in every once in a while to visit while she still lived on Ward Ave. We would laugh over how Chuck would often drop by to “borrow” hamburger for dinner when we were young and hungry in the 70s. My condolences to her family. She will be missed.
Hello friend. I am a 47 year old woman-also liinvg for several years in exile- in Brazil (Not an easy life, be sure .) I love my wife, pay my taxes STILL in the US- vote, but where’s the protection and rights the US should provide it’s citizens? We live without healthcare in a dangerous area of Rio, try to run a sucessful small business here in Brazil..I miss my family and friends and BOY do I miss the priviledge of liinvg and working in the US- Brazil is so very difficult for us We want to come home to the US for good. We still pay the upkeep of a home in the US- in the hopes we’ll come home soon God bless us all and its time to demand change. See the movie: Pink and Green, it tells the story of bi-national couples and immigration inequality in a very touching short film, made by our dear friend here in Brazil, Gustavo marzolla. He was honored at Cannes for this film this past April, and is currently in Los Angeles where this film is showing at some festivals. We have friends everywhere who are helping our cause Someday maybe we’ll all meet in the US and give big hugs to each other..God bless and ask all your friends to join the fight!
