Mary and family....I have so many wonderful memories when we were all neighbors and our children were young. Our lives seemed hard, but looking back, they were the fun easy years.
My memories of Smitty are all good and remain in my heart.
Mary, I’m sending you love, prayers, and virtual hugs. Please take care of yourself.

I am absolutely so sorry for this! My name is Nicole, and I was one of the people you met at Sned Acres the day everything happened. I was with Betty and Kelly. I will always remember how kind you are all and how amazing our prayer circle with Kelly’s mom was. We have all been thinking about you and have you all in our prayers!
