Lewis B. Smith was the best friend I ever had! I think he was probably the most interesting man I ever knew next to my father. He grew up during the Industrial Revolution and worked hard his whole life. His first job was planting roses for a nursery for ten cents a week, he later went on to work for Eastman Kodak as a baker. He was shy seven months of retiring from Kodak, but because of family problems and that he loved his children he had to quit. From there he went on to became a cabinet maker, and a darned good one. I met him late in his life, and he helped me to grow up. He believed you could do anything if you tried hard enough and he did. I miss my good friend Lewy, and all the great talks we had. I wish his children had appreciated him more, I know I sure did.

A special thanks to daddislilgirl, for sponsoring my good friend Lewy.
