Grandpa Smith's Birthday-- January 10,1907

Favorite Food: Brown Sugar
Grandma Kennard said he just liked lot's of it because he remembered being hungry as a child. Hated to see food to go to waste.
Grandpa was color blind so Grandma Kennard doesn't think he has a favorite color
Liked the music of Steven Foster especially the song "Old Black Joe"

Grandpa loved to whistle and sing. I loved to hear him sing "Froggy went a courtin", and "You get a line and I'll get a pole."

Grandpa could quote whole chapters in the Bible from memory. Uncle Sean remembers "It was amazing. I would sit there with the Bible open and he would start talking and get it almost word for word at age 78. I couldn't believe it. He knew chapters from Isaiah, parts of Chronicles, and Ecclesiastes."

"Following (our daughter's) mortal death, our feelings were raw, we struggled, and still today we have moments of great sorrow, but we hold to the understanding that no one ever really dies. Despite our anguish when Georgia’s physical body stopped functioning, we had faith that she went right on living as a spirit, and we believe we will live with her eternally if we adhere to our temple covenants. Faith in our Redeemer and His Resurrection, faith in His priesthood power, and faith in eternal sealings let us believe. . . ( what). . .  President Gordon B. Hinckley said: “If you do your best, it will all work out. Put your trust in God. … The Lord will not forsake us.”4 Yielding Our Hearts to God   Oct 2015
