    We will definitely miss you, Mr. Goss. Even though I got married and moved across the country, you never failed to send us a Christmas card or invite us into your home when we visited my parents across the street. You were always such a sweet, sweet man and we will never forget you! Patty, I'm so, so sorry for your loss!
