Mrs. Smith was my piano teacher. She was so sweet and always smiling. I still remember the delicious cookies her husband used to make.

Mrs. Smith was one of the best examples I know of a woman who lived the Christian life, who was also blessed with ENORMOUS talent. She was the choir director at Stukeley Hall Baptist Church during my childhood, adolescent and young adult years. She also taught me piano with GREAT patience! She would always offer me a cookie! I have missed her smile over the years, but I know she's smiling with Jesus now! My heartfelt sympathy to her family!!
