What a wonderful life, filled with a passion like none I've seen before or since. May the Grace of our Lord God bless your soul and your family. It was an honor for me to serve with Ms. Smith and the Memphis Branch of the NAACP soon after I arrived in Memphis in the fall of 1968. Truly, a giant was amongst us - fighting for freedom each and every day. I will long remember her sharing with us - we have no permanent friends or permanent enemies. We only have permanent interests. I took that to mean freedom and justice for all.
