Oh how I LOVED Mr. and Mrs. McGoun! When worked at the Shaler Library as a teen and young adult I remember their kindness and humor and hard work. And Mrs. McGoun was such a faithful clipper of our coupons- her coupons! And wow, I can’t wait to see them both again on the other side of the Jordan! Many wishes and prays for peace at this time for the family. Thank you for sharing your beautiful mother, grandma, great-grandma with all of us. What a blessing to our community.
