My deepest sorrow to the family during this tragic loss of Beth. My memories of Beth are from growing up and being friends with the entire Smith family. Worshipping at church, and being a part of the family of God. I value these memories from my youth. Very special and should be treasured. God Bless you all. You are in my prayers and thoughts.

In Christ, Sherman A. Thomas

Bob & Mae,

We are so sorry for your loss. I know this is one of those times in your life when it rains, it pours.
In Proverbs 4, The Message, it reads, "Keep your eyes straight ahead...Watch your step,
and the road will stretch out smooth before you." Keep your eyes on Him:)
Charles & I think a lot of y'all & are praying you through this time.
