Mr. Smith was such a nice man. We enjoyed having him as our neighbor for over 25 years, and have missed seeing him since he moved away. The last time that we bumped into him in Amarillo he looked very happy. We regret that we were unable to attend his service. We are sorry for your loss, and know that you will miss him terribly. With our deepest sympathy, Bob and Barbara Hernandez
