  1. I am so sorry to hear of Mr. Smith’s passing. He was a great man and father! My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Hugs, Debbie Hale-Kiesel

  2. Daddy, as you well know and I tell you often, I love you more than life it self. You have been more than a father to me, you are also my best friend. (I know I just stole your line to me :o)) I already miss your hugs, your kisses, your voice, your laughter and your one liners soooo much! Being with you as you transcended to heaven was extremely hard, but at the same time, I felt very honored and gifted to share this with you. As much as I will miss sharing our lives together, I am so happy for you to be in heaven with God, Moma, your parents and all our relatives and friends who preceded you. I had the strangest feeling when I woke up Wednesday…that you we’re so extremely happy and pain free, that at first I wasn’t quite sure what to make of it. Melody said that was your way of confirming to me that we had made the right decision. Love you Daddy – Your one and only favorite daughter

  3. We are grateful to have known Ray through Brad and Tammi. He was fun to be with and we’ll miss him. Our condolences to the Smith family. We are thinking of you all.

  4. Donna and Brad – I have so many memories with your Mom and Dad. They were our best friends and we could always count on them if we needed to – like the time Norm fell off the ladder, they came and drove us to the hospital. We got together at least once a month for dinner at each others house and played the game “Aggravation”. Ray was such a kind man and I loved his sense of humor. He will be missed!

  5. I am so sorry for your loss. I hope what the bible says about our dear love ones who has fallen at sleep in death will bring you comfort. At Acts chapter 24 and verse., “The is going to be a resurrection” of the dead. What this means is, that we are going to see our love ones again.
