Even though I only spoke with Mr. Godun on a few special occasions, I had the true pleasure of meeting him and listening to his many incredible stories. Every instance when I was with Mr. Godun, he would always brighten up the room with his warming smile and hilarious jokes. I will always remember him as a strong, loving and incredible man. Praying for him and his family. Love, Ahmed Shabbir
