From ashes to home, Goddards regroup

Jerry and Sherron Goddard are still getting used to their new home on Cemetery Lane.

“Strange,” Jerry said about his surroundings.

The structure is in the same location where the Goddards have lived together for more than 30 years. Their original home was destroyed in a fire in December 2013. Instead of moving, the Goddards decided to rebuild. They moved into the new home last fall.

Sherron echoed her husband’s sentiments about the place.
