No story, Geri, but just heard of Dan's passing this morning at Mass and was greatly saddened. I haven't seen him in a while, but last time was at a 55+ meeting and he was his usual smiling, friendly self -- he always made every conversation so very personal and had such lovely things to say. I'll miss his smiling face, but the one he is smiling at now is holding him close and rewarding him for a life well-lived. Love, Shirley
Hi Geri , was very saddened to hear of your loss . i just heard today so am sorry I was unable to attend the service . you and Dan were like second parents to me growing up , and my memories of Dan were always around his bbq grill and making burgers for Dana . I was glad to see the both of you at Mr. Caulks funeral some years ago and I wish I would have known him as an adult for I was probably just a pain in the rump when I was young but always admired and respected him. Just a look on the bright side you did have a long happy marriage with him and am sure you have many fond memories of your life with him . I wish you the best in life and you will be in my prayers .

Dan Good was my first employer, during my college years. I worked at his liquor store on Dale Mabry. He was a kind and patient man.
My condolences to his family.
Dan always had encourging words for me after Mass each Sunday. He would always mention that he was praying for our Knights of Columbus Council because of the good things we did. Now our Council is praying for Dan.
Rest in Peace my friend,
Past Grand Knight

Being a Yankee, my first experience eating Black Beans and Rice was at a Good/Coniglione Christmas Eve Party. MMMMMMM Dan Good could cook and make it a memorable experience you never forget. Thanks for the memories Papa Good!
