I'm sorry for the loss of your dad & my dearest cousin.
Memories are gifts that our hearts receive to bring gental comfort as we grieve. Smoot was a very nice cousin & he was very close growing up with my dad in Lagrange Georgia.
May God give you both comfort during this most difficult time.
You two were the best DAUGHTERS God bless you.
