Goodbye to Mr. Goemans

My close friend Marney lost her father yesterday afternoon. John Goemans has been battling cancer for a number of years, and he lost that fight yesterday afternoon. He passed away peacefully with his family by his side till the very end.

I have some great memories of Mr.Goemans. He was great friends with my dad, and often they would get together and fellowship. Marney would often talk about her dad with such pride. She loved him dearly, and enjoyed how open they could be with one another. He also treated me very well. It was like I was his daughter too.

My prayer is that God would give Marney, her sisters, and especially Karen Goemans (John's wife) strength during this time. You will be missed greatly Mr.Goemans. Love you!
