Roanoke Valley News

ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — Addison Jane Goff was just nine months old when she tragically passed away from health complications on Sept. 26, 2019.

The family, as you can imagine, was heartbroken that their little baby girl was now gone. The grief they experienced pushed them to turn that sadness into love for others.

The family came together and started helping others in need to honor her legacy. This Thanksgiving, the family chose to distribute free breakfast meals at Fallon Park. They whipped up biscuits, gravy, and much more.

Addison’s mother, Kali Goff, wants everyone to make sure they are loved.

“Live every moment like it’s your last,” said Kali. “That’s what we try to do here is make sure everyone knows they’re loved, no matter what’s going on this time of year especially. If you feel alone, you have someone in us cause we know how it feels to be alone.”

The Goff family has been doing this for the last year and a half and will continue to find ways to help others, so little Addison’s legacy will be honored.
