Thinking of Sharon with love and many happy memories.
Gary Smith and Family (cousin)
Family love and prayers are sent to Peggy and Dennis and their families. The Smith's will always remember our joint driving trip to California and the memories made on that trip. The many family events with Sharon and the Higgins clan at Clark Lake and at Waterloo Street were great memories too. Peggy and Rich's wedding ranks as a family memory as well. We have been blessed.
