Father's Day: Memories of Richard Smith

Father's Day Anthology for June 21, 2009

By Alice Smith Robinson

In memory of our dad who went home to be with Jesus on April 25th 1992.

Many years have passed since that day but we will never forget what an honest and decent man he was.

He loved his family very much and loved it when we all came home at the same time.

We would love to be able to tell him about all of his great grandchilden. We all loved him very much.

This man we are proud to call him, "Dad." Richard Smith. With our Mom beside him, they raised 12 girls and one son, Robert Allen.

You did a lot of things right, Dad you can be proud of all your family.

We love you. always, Dad
