We were very sad when we received the news this morning. Today, August 15, 2009, Barbados Senator Sir John Stanley Goddard passed away. My husband shed a few tears as he fondly remembered his teenage days with his family at the Crane.

Many have achieved great heights like Sir John Stanley, but few have done it with the kindness and integrity that he exhibited. It was these personal qualities that eclipsed his achievements and made Sir John Stanley Goddard a great man.

We extend our sincere condolences to the Goddard family. If there is anything we can do, please do not hesitate to ask.
