Ms Smith you will forever be missed. I will miss hearing your voice every day. I always saw you as my play mom. I remember you telling me Baby if someone else did it, you can do it too. God has allowed me many opportunities to use my gifts in places and around people that some only dream of. Every time Im faced with a challenge, I remember what you told me in my early 20s. I will forever love and miss you. Isaac Spry
