Letter: Deeply appreciative

— We would like to thank Kris Thomas, Dalton Public Works, the Dalton Parks and Recreation Department, the Dalton Civitan Club and the Dalton Tree Board for the honor bestowed on our husband, father and grandfather (Harlan Godfrey) in renaming Civitan Park in his honor. We would also like to recognize and thank Mayor David Pennington, the City Council and the Dalton Parks and Recreation Board of Directors.

We deeply appreciate all the heartfelt thoughts and comments expressed to us about him. Harlan loved this community and all the people that call this city “home.” He enjoyed doing his part like so many others to make Dalton a better place to live and work, both now and for generations to come.

He was a humble man and would not have wanted the recognition, however, our family could not be more proud of a man we miss every day.

With our most sincere appreciation,

Carolyn Godfrey and daughters Tarre Green, Dawn Sellers and Kara Allen
