Dear Cindy,
I am so sorry to hear about your mother passing away. I always loved to visit with her when I would do her hair, I have thought about you all often when coming to Hampton to see my family. She was such a great loving lady who always made me laugh and was always happy to get her hair done. Again I am so sorry for your loss.

Sammy and family,

By way on reintroduction, I am the youngest son of J.T. and Lucille Smith who used to attend the Greenwood Pentecostal Holiness Church. I just wanted to express my sympathy at the death of your mother. You and your family will be in my thoughts during this difficult time. I saw where your mother was 93 years old. Had my mother lived, she also would have been 93 years old. No matter how old they were when they died or how long we were able to have them in our lives, we will still miss our mothers when they are gone. My mother died in May 2008 and I miss her as much, if not more so, today as I did when she died.

Again, let me express my sympathy at your family's loss. Take care and best wishes to all of you.

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.
