Our Buddy, Al 3 years today, you have been taken from us! We can wipe the tears from our eyes, But, we can’t wipe the pain from our hearts. May the winds of Heaven blow softly and whisper In your ear, how much we love and miss you and wish That you were here. You may be gone from our sight But you are never gone from our hearts. We can no longer see you with our eyes Touch you with our hands. But we will feel you in our hearts forever. Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, Love leaves a memory no one can steal. Love you, Tony and Nora R.I.P., Our Buddy!!!

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.........
