I will always have so many FOND memories of this Special Cousin, Bobby Gray Smith... All the family get-togethers when we were growing up and going to each other's houses and eating, playing, and just being ourself. Bobby was always so quiet....unless he wanted to"get one over on ya" , Oh there were so many happy times we had as children!!!

He served his country serving in US MARINES, we were always proud of him. He was a good man, a good Daddy, and good friend to many people. He will be missed by all especially by his loving family. He is in God's hands more pain, no more suffering.

We will meet again soon and until we do, keep all of them in heaven straight until I get there Cuz.

Bobby, whom we loved will still echo within our thoughts, our words, our hearts.” “What is lovely never dies, but passes into other loveliness.” “With sympathy, thinking of you at this sad time and sending love.”..Bobby was loved by many people...I know he would stop by the house and we would talk about everything...he always made me laugh...

Bobby was a very special friend. We first met him when we were trucker co-workers & quickly became friends for life. We visited each others homes & fished & fellowshiped together many times. He will be deeply loved & missed.

Brother Bobby touched so many people as he courageously fought to LIVE ! With so many serious diseases & pain working against him, he remained positive in his outlook, he enjoyed his loving family & friends & most importantly, he clung to & praised our Lord Jesus Christ, no matter what was happening !!! He looked forward to going Home to Heaven !!! We are already missing him & his humor & his "I love you", but we will see him & Jesus &our other loved ones soon !!! Till then, may we all strive to " walk a closer walk with Jesus"---He Loves Us !!!
Love, Sister Sue & Billy
