You are in our hearts forever. We will always love you.

This page is created in the memory of my grandpa, William Harold Smith, who went to be with the Lord on September 13, 2012.  He will be greatly missed.


If I had known the last time I saw you was going to be the last,
I would have hugged you a little longer because now my chance has passed.
If I had known the last time we spoke would be the last time I'd hear you speak,
I would have talked to you longer because I knew you were getting weak.
I wish I could've known that simple "I love  you, goodbye"
Was the last chance I'd ever have to hear your reply.
Now my heart is heavy and I am in despair,
Because I took for granted that you'd always be there.
So much fills my head so many things  I can't let go.
So many things that I regret,
If I had only known.

"Well Papa, in one week it will be my birthday. One thing that never failed was you calling on my birthday!
