Dear Smith children, so very sorry to read about your Mom passing. I will always remember your Mom and Smitty as neighbors who were humble and kind. Loved talking to your Dad at the fence. Laughed my butt off. The picture you chose was beautiful. There is always an emptiness when you lose your mother, a part of your family is missing. Cry,laugh, speak of her often. And continue to be the loving family she leaves behind. God bless. Diane Coleman
