SMITH - In loving memory of a loving husband, father and grandfather, Frederick Charles Smith who left us May 9, 1995.
Five years have passed, Since you've been gone
Seems like only yesterday, Our lives are not the same since then,
As I'm sure you already know, But we are trying hard each day
And still our heartaches grow.
You taught us how to persevere, With things we do not like
But it was hard, When it meant losing you so early in our life.
We hope your hurting has all gone.
Since on that final day, You left us all to carry on our lives the usual way.
There is so much more you could have done
And you missed seeing a special grandson.
But he will know you, We will make sure, As everyday we can tell him more.
His name is Jesse, music is his thing, his gift from you will be your ring.
Always in our minds and definitely in our hearts.
Lovingly remembered by wife Gayle; daughter, Julie; son-in-law, Leo and grandsons, Jesse and Zachery.
