    I’m sorry for your loss but we know Sis.Smith is healed and rejoicing in the Lord. Sis. Smith was such a sweet lady all the time. I never heard her say anything bad about anyone, she always had a smile on her face. She truly loved the Lord and was faithful to her Church. May the Lord give you Peace, Comfort and Strength during this time in your life. ⚘
