Our prayers to your family. I just heard of "Chic's" passing as I remember calling him growing up from the 70's all my life. I have fond memories of our family always going to Liberty to visit all day when you all lived in Liberty and will my whole life. What great memories of those simpler times. I miss the whole family and wished we were all local to one another but life takes us in different directions. May "Chic" now have no more pain or suffering as I think of the Bible verse Revelation 21:3-4 "And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, "Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He will dwell among them, and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain, the first things have passed away."

Judy, will pray for you and your brothers and sisters during your loss. So many memories. Some really warm Christmases and good times on Starmount. Vanessa and myself will keep each of you in our thoughts during the next few weeks. May "Chick" Smith rest in peace.
