I will always carry her memory. She encouraged me to go into teaching, she helped me with my sons diagnosis and gave me many happy days. Her husband Dale and I go way back to 1970 in the beauty business and that is how I met Marilyn. She was a joy to know.

I loved dr Goulas. I worked at Lamar university and when we were transferred to Houston she offered to pay my gas so I would stay at Lamar. She was a wonderful person. May she Rest In Peace.

GOD speed dear COUSIN, if I could count my blessings I would count YOU TWICE. May GOD hold you in his loving arms as he prepares a place for you in his kingdom.

I love Dr. Goulas and she will be missed. We became close friends when she was one of my professors at Lamar many years ago and we stayed in touch. She was one of my biggest cheerleaders. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Mrs. Goulas, Dr. Goulas, and Fara, She was known by all these names to me. I meet her when she first began working at Lamar. She was always there to encourage and help students. II had many of her undergraduate students observe and complete practices with students when I worked in South Park ISD. I was also fortunate to have her as instructor in graduate class as I got my master’s degree. Then I worked for Dr. Sontag and her tutoring business., Fairmont. We have crossed many paths over the years as professionals, friends, church, short visits in the grocery store. I last saw her at a Beaumont Convention Center Event Spring of 2016. She was always such a positive and upbeat friend to have in my life.

I only found out today about Fara's passing. She was an amazing person and only wish I could have known her longer. I was her Case Manager for Humana and was honored to be able to help in her care. Watch out Fara up there for the opossums. (Danny will know about this).
