This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Dan Smith. We will remember him forever.
"Dad would be 69 today. We'd probably go out for beer and wings and talk about his latest cabbie adventures. I miss him, and I think of him often. He use to enjoy pineapple upside down cake, which I'm sure I only ever ate on his birthday. I think I'll try to make one today :) Happy Birthday dad."
"Dad, happy birthday. You'd be 68 today, or 21 with 47 years of experience :) I do miss you, everyday, but not hearing your voice today was hard. I hope you are secure with our Lord and that I will see you again someday. My parting memory for you today is a general one. Sometimes we would work the yard together and at the end of the day we'd sit on the porch, enjoy a cold Coke, and be satisfied with our work. Those were good times and good conversation. Thank you. Take it easy out there."
"Happy Birthday Dad#2! Taking the kids to Black Hammock today to celebrate you and their fun times with you! Eating gator bites and enjoying a beautiful day!"
"Remembering you on this day, Dan. I'll never forget our conversations and sharing over so many years - but not enough years. You will always be remembered with love and affection, brother."
"Happy Birthday Day. Its been a rough time for everyone since you left this world. I hope you have found peace where you are now. You are missed greatly by all who knew you and loved you."
"Uncle Dan always took time to listen. His input was very appreciated.
We all loved him and he made my life better just by being part of it.
You will never be forgotten. I Love You!"
"Uncle Dan had a big influence on my life, he helped me get hired at the phone co. 30 yrs ago. I'll miss playing golf and fantasy racing with him. We love and miss you always."
"Dan is one of my most favorite persons. I've enjoyed his time with us always. We enjoyed playing cards with him, as he labeled our way of playing pinochle as "cheater pinochle". We laught many times over that. He is a great guy, in my book, and will always be. We will miss you,, Dan All my love, Doris"
"Dan, my "little " brother' Some of my fondest memories are when he was a baby. I would carry him where ever I went- mostly to the beach in Atlantic City where I woulld sit on the sand with him and the Girls would flock around, I'll miss him much, but look foreward to see him.again"
"My Uncle Dan, so sweet and kind, always listened to what I had to say. My whole life he really cared about what was going on with me. I'll miss you and always remember the good times. Save room at the card table for me. Love You Always!!!"
"Uncle Dan was my favorite uncle (by virtue of seeing him the most). He was truly a very special person in my life. We always had a great time together while fishing, boating, talking or just playing cards. My favorite memory: he would play baseball (pitch & catch) with me when nobody else would (I would pitch wildly and nobody else would catch for me). Miss you, Uncle Dan!"
"Dan is my "baby" brother. He was Mom's favorite and deservedly so. I remember an incident once when he was 6 or 7 when I injured my fingers badly while working on my car. I went in the house with my hand wrapped in a rag, bleeding heavily and Danny started crying loudly. I told him "I'm the one hurt!", but he just ran and hugged me. I'll miss the phone calls. We love you, Danny!"
"I first met Danny as a 10 year old. He would sit with me and talk. Over the years, after he moved to Florida, we didn't watch him grow up, but after he was married to Susie, we'd spend a week at a time at his house. I remember playing UNO in the kitchen at Apopka. Saw him last when he came to our place in Eustis to see us before we went back north in May. Will forever miss him."
