  1. Even when we’re somewhat prepared for a loved one’s passing, it is never easy to say good-bye. While I didn’t know Roseanne personally, I know all the wonderful, funny stories my brother, David, shared about time spent in the Goodson household in Cantrall. There was never a dull moment. So sorry for your loss.
