Please accept my heartfelt condolences on your loss. Whenever I’d see him for gatherings he was always eager to share a Navy store, perhaps because he recalled that my dad was also in the Navy.
May God bless you all and comfort you in this difficult time.
p.s. I went to the wrong funeral home last night.
So sorry to hear about your loss. May all your happy memories be a constant reminder of your time together. With deepest sympathy

Mr Goda was a classic retired military family man. Too many funny stories to mention.
He will be missed. I promise to never wear a baseball “cover” at the table or allow my sons to do the same for the rest of my life-
Sending my sincere condolences to Theresa, and boys. Tommy was a great friend and always fun to be around. He will be missed.
Terri- our hearts go out to you and your family. Tom was one of a kind, so well recognized in LH, and a great steward of our community. God got a good one! Our prayers for you all. Mark & Sandi Kuritzky
