  1. Our most sincere condolences to Annette and Jim Jr. and the entire family on the passing of Mrs. Goguen. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

  2. Growing up I heard such wonderful stories from my daddy about his sister who was like a mother to him. He spoke highly of you always and it really showed how much he loved you. After my dads passing, I finally was able to find you and the rest of the family. Meeting you for the first time I finally understood the stories I heard growing up. I take comfort knowing you are with your loved ones again. A beautiful soul like yours will be missed by so many people. Rest easy aunt Ella… til’ we meet again. Xoxo

  3. I had the pleasure of meeting you Ella so many years ago. I remember that day so well. Your brother Ray and I stood outside waiting for you and Jim to arrive. When you finally did, I remember the big hugs we gave to each other. It was a nice visit. RIP dear sweet angel Ella.

  4. Jim ,I just found out.I am so sorry you have to go though this. I am having a Mass said. You and the family are in my daily prayers.I know this is the hardest journey for you to make but you are not alone. We don’t move on because part of our heart now is in heaven with our loved one. But each day with Gods grace and the support of our family and friends we can pick up our new cross and move forward.let yourself be carried by Jesus each day as a new born child and slowly he will teach you to walk this new path in your life.Remember how a child learns to walk. Slowly with help ,falling but getting up with help being unsteady for a while but in their own time they learn to walk independently with purpose toward there destination.You are in my prayers.
