We are sending our Love, condolence, and words of comfort to you and your family. We the daughters of the late Carlee Smith, Manervie Smith-Thomas and Carleen Smith are praying for you and asking God to lift you up and give you His peace during this season.

I remember your Dad so fondly when he would come over and chew the fat with our Dad. I also have wonderful memories of your Grandfather Gotslee visiting with our Grandfather Virgil. You too will have wonderful memories of your Dad to hold on to.

May God shower you with His Grace.

What seems like yesterday is decades away but, there you are living in my memories. Your exuberant personality ; your radiant smile were always a welcomed sight. My childhood memories flood my head as my heart breaks for a time long past... when I was a child that called you my Uncle Monte.
