Let's all praise Jesus Christ

Melanie Therese Goodwin of Arlington went to be with her Lord Jesus Christ on September 25th. Melanie was a bright, gifted young woman who loved God and who made the world a better place. The loss of Melanie's sweet spirit is a tragic loss to the world. She possessed God-given abilities to sing and act, and used them to share her faith in Jesus Christ. Her gifts in this regard often were on display in theater productions at school and at Theatre Arlington. Melanie was born August 4, 1988 and graduated from Bowie High School in 2006. She was a sophomore at The University of North Texas studying Radio/TV/Film. Melanie is survived by parents, Glenn and Peggy Goodwin; sister, Candace Goodwin; brother, Glenn David Goodwin; and, grandmother, Isabel Goodwin; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. Memorial services will be Saturday, September 29 at 2:00 p.m. at St. Andrews United Methodist Church, 2045 SE Green Oaks Blvd in Arlington. Memorial donations can be made to Theatre Arlington, 305 W.
