  4. I have known Virgie Smith for over 50 years beginning when I was a boy growing up in the Emma community. I witnessed the strong love she had for her husband and children. And, I experienced the warmth and love she extended to Allen’s friends. Her loss is not just in the Smith family, it’s also a loss for all who knew her. We join the Smith’s in mourning her loss. We can all be thankful we knew her and experienced her love. God bless Allen, Gary and Elaine and their families … Carl Winkler & Famity.

  5. Gary, so sorry to read about your Mom. I know how it feels & please know that you and your family are in my thoughts.
