To the family of Mr. Calvin Smith: My heartfelt condolences go out to you in your loss. Mr. Smith was indeed a pillar of the church community of Israel C.M.E. Church during my childhood. I was blessed to raise my daughters there; so they too experienced the generation of quality men of his era. I thank God for his life and pray for your comfort during this time. 1Thessalonians 4:13-18.
