    Our condolences to Mrs. Betty Smith and the entire family for your loss. We loved Kenneth so much and always referred to him as “Grandpa Smith”. He was a wonderful grandfather to our niece and nephew. We are the “other side” of the family but were invited to many Smith family gatherings and enjoyed it so much. Please know that our love and support will always be there for you. you are in our prayers and in our hearts.
