I babysat for Kimberlee and Bradley when they were little. Dr. Smith would usually come and pick me up, sometimes on his motorcycle. He always made me laugh. He was also the vet to our dogs. My family and I enjoyed his company.

Wayne was the master fixer of my canine boo boos, and I cherish the shared legging up pre-3 R rides and being a guest on the Aspen Ride. My sincerest sympathy to Betty Kim and Brad. May treasured memories bring comfort, light and love during these difficult times.
