Carey, this is Don Smith (son of former pastor, John Smith, at Antioch Baptist Church in the late 1960s). We knew each other from church and played backyard football together. You and your family were special to our family through the years. Your parents were always very nice to me. We are praying for you and your family as you grieve the loss of your Dad. May God's presence be felt by all of you. May God's love and grace surround you. Take care, Don
