Rising Sun has lost a truly wonderful gentleman. He helped our family through the loss of our sister and our parents. I remember going to Ashby's soda fountain with his niece Phyllis after high school was over for cokes made by Richard. He was a beloved student in my Mom's art class for many years and a talented artist. He will be missed.

What a gracious and caring man, you were such a help to my family, in so many ways, when I lost my parents, you were there to comfort, and offer your support, at anytime. What a blessings to know you, and share a bit of life with you. Heavens doors have been opened, and the angels are singing, as they welcome you home.

Please know your family is in our thoughts and prayers. Richard was a wonderful person and a great friend to my parents (Bob and Mary Ross). His compassionate care for others in times of need was so natural for him and appreciated by all who came in contact with him.

Goodie Family So sorry for your loss. Richard was a true gentleman who would go out of his way to help others. I have known Richard since becoming a funeral director in 1970. He was a good friend. His memories will always be in our hearts. God has gained a special angel and he will look down on all of us with love. I'am sure that God has said well done thy good and faithful servant.

The world is now missing one incredible person and Rising Sun can never been the same! Mr. Goodie was such a kind soul and his absence will be felt by all. My memories also go way back to Ashby's soda fountain where Goodie made the best darn cherry cokes in the world!!! Richard heard all of our problems, never judged, offered advise if asked and never revealed your secrets! He was our friend and confidant! We love you and you made a difference in so many lives. In his other life in the funeral business, he also made life a little easier and helped so many families (including mine) get through some of the hardest times of their lives. My deepest condolences to Richard's family, you can be proud that he was part of your family and we will all miss him dearly. God Bless Mr. Goodie and his family.

What a very sad loss for everyone. He had a way of making a funeral or viewing not seem so bad. He always knew just what to say to make you feel better.

To Richard Goodie's family: My sincere condolences for the loss of this wonderful man. He was a great member of this community. He has been there for so many of us during our time of need. May he Rest In Peace. It was a privilege to know him. Recently I shared a story about him when he was working at Ashly's. There was a group of ladies around town, I believe they were called the Rising Sun Homemakers. They all participated in an annual "secret pal" gift giving. Richard was their go to person. They would buy their gifts at Ashly's. Then Richard would not only wrap them, he would deliver them. He kept lists so that no one got the same gift twice. So he always knew who everyone's Secret Pal was, but he never would tell. Again, Rest In Peace Richard, Rest In Peace..

Mr. Goodie. Thank you for your kindness that you extended to myself and my girls years ago. I know that I had told you before how much it meant to me but you went above and beyond what anyone else had. You always had a hug and a smile for me, no matter where we met. Fly high with the angels my friend, you deserve those wings.

Me condolences to the family. I've known Ritchie all the way back to the soda fountain at Ashbys. What a wonderful person he was. He will be missed by all that knew him. Now I know why it snowed at home last week. My Aunt Anne always said that when it snowed it meant that the angles were cleaning heaven. Kay Conrad McMillan

Mr. Goodie, you took care of just about everyone in my family and also many friends with love. You just seemed to appear like an Angel to hold a shoulder if you somehow sensed one was breaking down due to our loved ones passing. You were so kind and reverent and really made our loved ones be the image that remains in our mind that we want. I hope your journey is peaceful to the stars above and as I go outside IN texas you will brighten it and light the way for us when its our time . Love you
