I haven't the words to express my sympathies to the Goodson family. However, I leave you with some great words penned many years ago...

I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom.
