Dad was a very very special man. He is greatly missed by all his family and no tribute is great enough to honor him in my opinion. I speak for all his children when I say we love and miss you dad, in ways words cannot express.

Dad's siblings include: Jennings Othie, Dencil, Homer, Argie, Arvin, Samuel, Goldie Smithson, Mary Beckleimer, Eula Mae Combs.

Do not stand at my grave and weep
by Mary Elizabeth Frye
Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glint on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you wake in the morning hush,
I am the swift, uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft starlight at night.
Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
(Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there, I did not die!)
