LD Smith lived with them for a time.  Henry worked for the Railroad and Lowell helped his Aunt Mary out on the farm while he was away.  He also kept Mary company.  My grandfather, Lowell, talked a lot about his Aunt Mary and Uncle Henry he loved them and liked to be at heir house.

Sometimes grandpa Smith (Lowell) when he was young went over to help out his Uncle Henry and Aunt Mary.  They were childless I believe.  Grandpa always had a warm spot in his heart for his aunt Mary.

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.
