32 Years...Aug. 25, 1975 - Sept. 28, 2007

Friends and Family,

Our dear Isaac Nathaniel Goodwin (a beloved husband, father, son, brother, nephew, grandson, and friend) is resting eternally in the arms of Jesus.

Please pray...without ceasing.


A quick note of appreciation to all who have rallied to our aid and comfort (II Cor 1:4), and those who have come along side us (paracletes) to superintend our farm. May God reward you according to your faithful labors.
Our hearts will be heavy for a long time and yet we rest...
In the Shadow of the Almighty (Ps 91)

Michael J. Stone, step-father

Stone family,
You know I am always praying. God is good in all things, although we don't understand. May He give you the tears to grieve, the peace as you leave your burdens with Him, and the joy that cometh in the morning of the love of the Father, and the strength of His promises.

I love you all, always.

Oh, Stone family, I am so sorry. I had no idea this was going on until I checked your blog today (I haven't checked it in a couple days). I so wish I had! I am praying fervently for you all, our whole family is. May the God of all PEACE fill you with hope. My heart is crying for you... We love you all.

Dear Stone Family:

I keep trying to leave a comment but it is not working - here's praying that it does work.

I found your blog by accident last night (well I don't think it was an "accident" - the Lord must have directed my fingers from the Sanders' blog) - I watched and prayed for your your brother (and son, Julie and Mike) and my heart was heavy for you at the last note. Our family is praying for your family and may you rest in Him and find comfort.

Thank you all who have to comfort our hearts. The Lord bless you for it!
At this time, some plans are being made for my dear brother's memorial service. It is difficult, especially for dear Susan (my sister in law) because all the decisions to be made lie with her. Her only comfort (as well as ours) is that the Lord saved Isaac and, one day, we WILL see him again.
Please pray for guidance for our family as a whole. We feel torn, but no rip is too big for the Almighty to mend! Blessings to you all through Christ our Lord and Savior!

In Christ,

Stone family -
CCC prayed for you all this morning in church, I've got the Rebelution on it, and I'm praying constantly. My heart breaks for you. Mom and I were thinking yesterday what a blessing that the girls were able to go on their separate trips to CA, and that your family trip was recent and full of memories. Isn't God good!

I love you all deeply, wish I could give you all long hugs,

Romans 5:3-5 - "More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us."

Dearest Jean and Fam,
Please, if it's possible, let CCC know how much our family appreciates their supplications. We are very grateful.
We are happy that we had seperate trips, only, my heart aches for Olivia! When she comes for her 16th birthday trip...our beloved brother will not be here, waiting to embrace her. We know the Sovereign has a plan through all this, but, oh it is hard to see right now!
Keep praying for us.
I muss you deeply as well an dlong for a comforting "Jean Marie Hug!"
Much Love in the Savior,

Stone family -
I am so glad you are back - I missed you. We all prayed our boots off, here in Titusville, you know we love you all to pieces. God's grace is sufficient for you.

His Joy in My Sorrow-
