Dear Beth, Tisha, Deb & family, I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Smitty. I had the pleasure of speaking with him on many occasions during dinner at local restaurants. We first met around 2009 when we were both unemployed. This gave us the opportunity to share many ideas. I enjoyed our conversations. Recently, we were not in touch because our work schedules conflicted and I missed that. You are in my prayers as your mourn the loss of your father, grandfather, companion and family member.
