    We got to know Mr. Goodroe at Shoppingtown Mall. His store was next door to our store. On slow days we would sit on the bench outside our stores, talk and watch the mall walkers go by. On busy days we would stick our heads in each other's stores and ask "can you spare some ones, quarters, etc." After the mall closed down and we all retired, whenever we saw him in town, he would always call out to us "Hi Rob, hi Roseann, how are you doing"? He was a great guy, we're so glad to have known him. Our condolences to his family. Rob & Roseann Robbins Chittenango, NY
