So sorry to hear the passing of Mrs Goudey. She was my teacher at the Voc back in the 70's. Such a wonderful lady she was one of my mentors. And she was so Stylish and even looked great in Jeans. I had broken my toe and was on crutches and they took me home.....well it was the ground hog day storm and your dad drove us up on a wharf on water street to see what was going on. Water everywhere and we shouldn't have been on the wharf. I know your mother wasn't pleased but she remained calm and they got me home driving around down wires etc. Apparently her and my mother worked together in Toronto way back when...sorry for your loss of a wonderful lady. Hugs.
