To the Smith family,

"Mr. Smith" helped raise more than his own kids on Highland Ave.  His vivid life experiences, his humor, incite and patience influenced the lives of a bunch of kids who grew up with Curt and Scott. 

I know I thought of him as a spare dad and a wise older pal who was always there and had the talent to put things in a funny persecutive when a kid just didn't want to hear the same answer fro his own parents.  

He will be missed by many and I know that my brother and I are richer for having grown up under his influence and that we will always enjoy found memories of him.

Aunt Lolly says about her nickname : My father gave me the name lollypop.  "When I got older the kid stared to tease me and asked, 'are you an all-day sucker?'  Well after that I didn't want anyone to call me lollypop so it got shortened to Lolly.
