Oh, Kimberly Goddard, I’m so, so sorry to hear this news. Your father was a true hero and a huge inspiration to everyone who knew him. The animal world was his kingdom and he was their humble king. I’m so sorry for your loss.
I know what an important part of your life he was. I’m sure he took comfort in knowing that you are continuing his fight to end animal cruelty and find as many homes for animals as possible. I am grateful to have spoken with your Dad on several occasions and it was a true honor and pleasure. May his soul Rest In Eternal Peace across the Rainbow Bridge amongst the animals who love him

I’m so sorry Kimberly! Your dad was an incredible man who always gave the most accurate Cleveland forecasts that our family watched for at least 3 generations. He did more for the animals of Ohio than any other person ever has or probably ever will. Your dad is a legend that will live on for a very long time with a lot of people.
