We were so sorry to hear of Godfrey’s passing. Even though he isn’t with us, he has gifted us with amazing memories. Family was his passion as he always welcomed them around, including me. He always made me feel included, as he did so many others. We will miss him very much.

Love is stronger than death even though it can’t stop death from happening, but no matter how hard death tries it can’t separate people from love. It can’t take away our memories either. In the end life is stronger than death, so live on in his love!

Simone and Family, please accept our deepest condolences, we wish we could be there to share this time with you. Know that
you are in our thoughts and prayers. We will see you after COVID.
My favorite memories of Godfrey are with Dad, from the wood chopping to maple syrup making, they were always trying new things together and there were no limits to what they would try! Living life to the fullest!
Love Connie & Sal
