    Amber and Matt,
    So sorry about the passing of your Dad. I only had the chance to meet him one time but I could tell he was a Godly man.
    Even thought there is sadness in his passing, the blessing is that he is with his Lord and Savior. I know that you all will miss his fellowship, but one day you will all be reunited in a much better place.
    I will be praying for all of you !!

    DI arlene and family: I am so sorry to hear that Duck had passed away. Susan and I were in Virginia to a funeral service for her uncle. We just got home and was looking for the local obituary list in the Greenville News and saw Donald’s name listed. I am very sorry that I was unable to visit with you and the family for his service earlier today. Again I am very sorry for his passing. Please accept our condolances and let me know if we can be of any help at any time. Very sincerely , Jimmy and Susan Smith.
