  1. Dot,

    I was crushed to hear of Mr Smith’s passing. He was a wonderful man and I hope you know how much you and he mean to me. I do not know how to tell you how sorry I am for your loss. Chuck would always make me laugh and keep me “on my my toes.” I always looked forward to him updating me on his grandson’s exploits on the diamond with the Yankees. I know how proud he was of him and surely was of all of his children and grandchildren. I will truly miss him. Thank you for allowing me the privilege of being a small part of your lives. I wish you my sincerest prayers for comfort for you and your family during this most difficult time.

    With my sincerest condolences,
    Dr Glanton

  4. Dot-
    I just saw this post on Calloway Allee when I was looking for someone’s service time. I am so sorry to hear about Chuck. Believe or not, I was just thinking about you today! I am retiring and trying to clean out my office. I ran across a picture of Chuck! I have such fond memories of you two and I am so sad that I didn’t know in time to attend Chuck’s funeral. Please know that you are loved! May sweet memories sustain you!
    Love, Debbie Kelly
