To the Smith Family, it saddens me to hear a good man has passed. I was a little boy when I first meet Mr. Smith. We lived next door to his funeral home. I can recall to this day playing in the parking lot and talking to Mr. Smith.

He was a great person. He will be missed.

Dear Jackie, I don't know if you remember me but we taught CCD at Nativity together many years ago. I was sorry to read of Andy's death in the paper. I have such good memories of both of you... I learned so much from you. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Warmest regards, Kris

Jackie and all the family - so sorry for the loss of your husband and father. He always had a "happy face". About six weeks ago at Mass at Nativity, he told me he had come back to the church! You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. Love to all.

Dear Jennifer and Corey,

We've heard many enriching stories of your Dad over the years. We also had the pleasure of meeting him when we attended a dinner almost unannounced. The spaetzel was tasty and the acceptance and generosity was warm and gracious. It was easy to see how all those wonderful stories could be real. We send our heartfelt condolences to you and the entire family.

Scrolling through these messages, and seeing so many people yesterday shows how popular my grandpa really was. I am one of the luckiest people in the world to have been apart of Mr. Andy Smith's life. I will always remember him as a man who put everyone else before himself, and that is a lesson all 8 of his children have taken on. Papa was known for filling a room full of laughter and love, and that was will something none of us will ever forget.
