I have very special memories of my Aunt Bea and my Uncle Rulon. We had many Smith family reunions at their home in Riverton. They had a huge front lawn that held many tables and chairs. There was always lots of visiting, food and just a good time. After they quit having the reunions at their house the Smith Reunion fell apart. It was sad as we lost contact with a lot of family that we never got to see again. I shall treasure my memories of the good times that we shared on the Poll Line Road in Riverton with so many loved family members. Thanks for the memories. I love and miss you both.
