He was an Amazing man, If he wasn't working, he was taking care of his girls horses or ponies. I remember him sitting making nets, I had no idea what for at the time. He was a quiet man but always kind. He will be missed. My love and prayers to his girls, now grown women. Making their way through life with what he taught them, to be with the live of his life in Heaven. Together again at last.

Thank you for your kind words. He taught me how to make and how to throw shrimp and mullet nets. He always had one n the making hanging in the dinning room when we lived on Maryland Ave.

I always knew him as Mike. I met him working with maintenance at the mill. I know he will be missed and he loved his family.

Mr. Smith was a wonderful neighbor. When he was gardening, he would call me and tell me to meet him at the fence. His hands were always full of fresh veggies! My husband always enjoyed talking to him about his hot rods. He was an excellent neighbor and will be missed. Our prayers and thoughts are with the family.

Thank you so much, he always talked highly of his favorite neighbors... ❤️💔
