Uncle Jerrell, we will surly miss all our phone calls, but most of all, we will miss walking in somewhere and seeing your big smile! You have been a wonderful uncle and did so much for so many! I've seen you stand in your faith, when others were doing their best to take you down; you never gave in and you are now surrounded by so many that have gone before you! We can only imagine the welcoming committee of family that was lined up waiting for you! We love you and will miss you! Jim & Sandy

I will always cherish the memories I have of the Smith family. We grew up as a very close family and over time each went different ways but our love for each other never changed. We had many hours of singing and playing in our living room at Lonoke until wee hours in the morning. There was always time
for "one more". Jerrell will be missed. I will miss his good stories he told about growing up around mom and dad. They both loved him and I know there
is a reunion going on now in Heaven. Love you Carolyn.

The Smiths have been like family to us since my childhood. What wonderful memories of fish fries, delicious meals around the table, and love and laughter! They were Emily’s adopted grandparents and she loved her Grandpa and Grandpa Smith!
I know this is a sad time for those left behind, yet we all are happy he is reunited with the love of his life, Jolene, and Mark, and all the other family and friends that have gone on before! May God grant you all peace and comfort.

Carolyn, I’m so sorry for the losss of your Dad, his smile and love permeated everything he was around. I know he’s happy finally praising his Lord and basking in his light, and loving all his loved ones whom have gone before, especially his love Jolene.
It’s hard when you loose both of your parents. I’ll be thinking about and praying for you and the kids, which are grown now😃.
Love and Hugs
Debbie Travis Burchfield🙏

Jerrell and Jolene keep me when I was just and infant when my mother went to work. They both spoiled me rotten. I can’t wait for him to hug all the family. But most of all I’m so excited he gets to see Jesus. He has talked and lived for him as long as I have known him. Uncle Fred will show him the way. Carolyn you are a wonderful daughter and he was very thankful for you. With all my love,
Linda

Jerrell and Jolene were more family to me than friends from my teen years and on through life. They were always so good to me and never allowed any change in circumstances to alter the love they showed to me. I have so many wonderful memories of the fish fries at their house on Sunday nights after church and other times together. Jerrell, please give my boy a big hug and also my folks. I know they are thrilled you are there...and of course, so is Jolene. Heaven looks better to me than ever. That wonderful Grand Reunion is coming up...I can hardly wait.
