I and my Angel Dorothy send to Rena's Family our heart. love, and prayers. I can recall many wonderful memories with all of the Smiths, at he club house by the creek. I must add that Stanley and Ollie could never match team of "Fred and Arnold." They bounced off each other like rubber balls. i have loved all the Smiths forever. Rena's love will live on through her and Richards children for generations. I say to Rena's children, look into one another's eyes...Rena will be there.
