I am the granddaughter of Alvin L. Goss's brother, Elmer F. Goss. My mother, Virginia Goss Brown , often speaks of Audrey Goss Eslinger, so even though I have never met Juanita nor Audrey, I want to express my sympathy and my mother's also. I have done extensive genealogy of the Goss family to get to know my grandfather's family. With Sympathy, Marcia Rettinger
