As a former member of the Officer Corps with 1 RCHA, I counted Nichola as one of my friends. She was a hardworking and sincere individual, and a credit to the Unit and Cap Badge.

R.I.P., Nic
On behalf of my family, I would like to say thank you for Capt. Goddard's sacrifices and my sincere sympathies to her family and Regimental Family.
To Capt. Goddard, Mission Complete. RIP.
My sincerest condolences to the family, friends and comrades in arms of Capt. Goddard. 

Rest in Peace, Ma'am.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

Nichola was a classmate of mine. Though I hadn't seen her since graduation, what strikes me now is I never remember seeing her without a smile on her face.

She will be missed by everyone who knew her. RIP  :cdn:

RIP Captain Goddard, You  have given everything possible to Canada "UBIQUE"  :salute:  :cdn:
In my 4 years at Shilo I never once met her; which is not important because she was a fellow member of the CF and that's what really matters in the end.

Rest in peace, and my condolences to her husband. Sad day for Shilo.
Another sad day, God speed, Heart felt condolances to her friends and family.

Stand Easy...End of Mission. RIP :salute: :cdn:

Fare-thee-weel, thou first and fairest!
Fare-thee-weel, thou best and dearest!
Thine be ilka. joy and treasure.
Peace, Enjoyment, Love and Pleasure!
Ae fond kiss, and then we sever!
Ae farewell, alas, for ever!
Deep in heart-wrung tears I'll pledge thee.
Warring sighs and groans I'll wage thee.

Thoughts and prayers to her family.


thoughts, good wishes and prayers to her family. May their hearts be at ease.

RIP mama.
Nic was a friend and classmate of mine, and a fellow gunner.

I had nothing but the utmost respect and admiration for her, and so did those she served with. She was as professional as they come. She loved Canada, the Army, and the guns. It was my privilege to have counted her as a friend.

I know she died doing what she loved. We are all poorer for this loss. May she rest in peace.

God bless, Nic.
At the going down of the sun,
and in the morn, we will remember them!

Dulce at decorum est pro patria mori

My condolences to her family, friends and regiment.
