"Words can't express the pain & sorrow I feel, bcuz of my selfish & ignorant feelings I wasn't there for you when you needed me most.  Im sorry for not spending more time with you, sorry u couldn't see & interact with the rest of ur grandkids. I should've tried harder to reconnect with you & now I'll never get the chance. But if ur reading this just know that I 4 give you & hope u can 4 give me. Also that I miss you & love you very much. I know life goes on & things happen for a reason but we had so much unfinished business. I have many regrets but one is that I can't tell you all this personally.  

Love you dad wish you were here with me.
Gone but never 4 gotten.
Rest in Paradise
Al Smith

Love your son Alexis"

"As my mom's baby brother you were always special to the family.  Now I believe that you are with her, your mom and dad.  I thank the Lord that you are no longer in that terrible pain.  Just being a couple of months older than you I think we grew up more like brother and sister.  I will miss you, and cherish the good memories and I do sincerely believe that as the bible says that "to be absent in the body is to be present with the Lord" so with that I know you are Alright! I know you loved the Lord from a child and revered Him.  I Love You Al.  Rest In Peace, Your niece Debbie........."
