Although we never had the privilege of meeting and knowing Mrs. Carrie Smith, we certainly know her daughter Myrtle who is an inspiration to us, and it is said the apple falls not far from the tree. Our deepest sympathy to Myrtle and the family. May the good Lord be with you at this difficult time.-Roy & Pam Golsan-
