Dear Smith Family, you’re all in our thoughts and prayers at this sad time. So many memories were made over the years. God bless.

The Smith Family is such an intricate part of my husband's family as they were growing up. Such great memories of ball games, ball parks and rambunctious little boys. Your dad was proud of his girls and loved you all. He can finally put aside the grief of losing three fine boys and enjoy eternal life. God bless you all during this difficult time.

I had the absolute pleasure of being Don's homecare nurse for many years. There was never a visit that he didn't make me laugh or tell me corny jokes, even on days I knew he didn't feel well.
Always a smile and a kind heart.
I'm sorry for your loss of Don, but...he's now making Jesus laugh.
God's speed Don.
