  1. I miss you already Daddy. Thank you for giving me the farm life with cows and chickens and when I got older letting me have the herd of horses and vehicles on the property.

  2. Gordon Smith says:

    Well my friend. A lot of miles we have covered. From Wayne, Jay and the gang to the trips to seattle. Rest well my friend. Gordy Smith

  3. Some of my best childhood memories were from spending time on the farm with Reba and your whole family. You will be missed dearly.
