have a memory or condolence to add?

Roy Smith Jr.

I had the honor and privilege of being the only son of the most loving and devoted Mom ever. We shared a lot of memories and good times through the years. Her greatest gift to me and my three sisters was her devoted love to God and her family. She was a prayer warrior and shared her love of Jesus Christ to all who would listen. She will be greatly missed but I know she is in Heaven with the two men she loved the most Jesus and Daddy.

Frances was my dearest friend; we shared happiness and sorrow throughout our 65 plus years. I will be thankful until my last day on this earth for our dear and close relationship. I have learned throughout my life that she was the special friend that everyone needs. As the saying goes, "There are friends, and there are friends!" Thank You, Jesus, for placing Frances in my life. I am a better person because of it. Fran's and my memories will keep me until we can be together "for eternity" in Heaven with our Heavenly Father and our husbands, family and friends. I love you my most precious friend ever.
I will see you soon and we will walk over Heaven together for all eternity.

I cannot Express how much Nanny meant to me. Her words of wisdom, love, kindness and cooking got me through my teenage years. She never said a bad word about anyone without first saying something nice about them. She was a prayer warrior who prayed daily for all her family and friends. A shining example of what a true believer and mother/grandmother should be. I'm happy to know she's rejoicing in heaven with Paw Paw. I love you Nanny and I can't thank you enough for what you mean to me.

Sorry to hear of Fran's passing. She use to make me laugh when we worked together at Thermal Supply. I loved her & enjoyed working with her. We had a blast working together. She always made me feel like family. She & Betty was a godly example to all those around them. I know her & Roy are shouting on the streets of glory! My deepest condolences to family and especially to Betty for the passing of her dear friend.
