ADD A MEMORY

I remember Smitty as being a faithful member of St. Andrew's Episcopal church before his failing health made it impossible for him to attend. I think of him often as he and Ruth always sat in the pew just in front of me. I miss them both and was sorry to hear of his passing.

Mr. Edsel was made by God from golden thread. He was the finest gentleman I have ever met in my life. I have had many wonderful Christian people in my life and I was honored to have known Edsel.

Prayers to the family,
