Jeff, John and the Smitt family. I am so sorry for your loss. Mrs. Smitt was a wonderful lady and she was a friend to all of us. She deserves a lot of credit for getting us all through our younger years. I'll always remember her welcoming ways and appreciate it more now than I realized then. I'll be thinking about you all at this difficult time.
