|Sister Smith, my flower she bloomed where she was planted. The flowering cactus she gave me is in full bloom now and will watch it for years to come and think of her. My heart breaks for all who knew and loved her. She was my dear sister in Christ and like a momma to me. We spent a lot of time at church together and out to lunch. Long talks on the phone and her laughing and happiness is precious memories. I have a tape of congregation singing at Glory Road church and often listen to it of her voice and my dad singing old time hymns. I will treasure till the day we reunite in Heaven. That is Gods promise to his children. Love and prayers for peace and comfort during this time and days ahead to all her family and friends. She is rejoicing now, Praising the Lord I loved you so much! Sister Myrtle (momma)Smith.. Miss you ! Love your Friend Mary|

|My Grandmother was a wonderful, fun person to be around. She may have threatend to "switch" me a few times with a tree limb, but I would have deserved it for sure. I have great memories of Grandmother in her kitchen making chicken & dumplings. My father always wanted Granny's cooking. She was always busy as a bee taking care of everyone. I will always love you and be thankful you were my Granny.|
