Keep on fishing.
Randy and I fished all the time in our early years. We fished many a body of water together. I was shocked to hear of his passing. Mary and I send our condolences and will keep Barbara in our thoughts.

I was in the USAF stationed in Altus AFB with a Randy Smith that was from Stratham lost touch after our mobility group was shut down. Just wondering if this was the same Randy. Very sorry for you loss.

Smitty was a great friend and neighbor. I spent a lot of time enjoying his company, fishing, snowmobiling, and just helping each other out with neighborly chores. I'm going to miss him dearly. He was like a Brother to me. Barbara, if you need anything, give me call... Love, Ray Miller
