Many wonderful memories come to mind when it comes to the Smith Family. From the 3rd grade, I have known Judy and she always made me feel like I was one of her own. My heart for you all, I know what this feels like and I wouldn't wish it on anyone. Just that know that I love you all and I am praying that God has his hand upon you during this difficult time.
