I am going to miss Mother Smith’s laugh and twinkling eyes! She always had a smile for me and I felt loved by her! My sympathies to her family and friends. She was a beautiful soul and is now with her husband and daughter.
I remember staying at her house when I was little and having toast and spun honey for breakfast. She got me on Miracle Whip!
She always had the best wrapped presents at Christmas time!
She was always making something for others every time I came over to visit. I’m going to miss our lunches at Sweet Tomatoes.
God Bless Mother Smith.
