Mr. Smith was a customer of mine in Vero Beach. He became a friend with lots of jokes to make you smile and lots of very interesting stories. I will miss him.

I first met Janet and Bill at the Wednesday Morning Ladies Bowling League. Janet and I bowled on the same team, and Bill would come there after golfing. He was so much fun to talk to. I really enjoyed the time we spent with both of them. Janet, you are in our thoughts and prayers.
