    I had the pleasure of serving with Cpl Goodrich (Goody) while Drill Instructors at MCRD Parris Island. She had such a wonderful personality and a smile that lit up a room. And on top of all that she was one fine Marine. Rest In Peace my friend.

    Please accept my condolences on your loss. I worked with Ms Coan in the late 80s at Camp Johnson. She was well respected in her field and a great person. I'm sure her loss creates a large void for the family.
