"My wife's family has alway chosen Smith's Funeral Home. My father n law, Ben J. Patrick is buried there and Sara Patrick will too. So when my mother died of covid19 on 9/15/20 it was only natural that we chose Smith's for desire to be cremated. Everything was handled as we wish, even though Kathy and I developed covid19 after being exposed to my mother. They handled our situation and waited on us to respond."
