So many happy memories of Uncle David, especially his laugh that triggered so many giggles at every family gathering. I hope he and my mom and Aunt Edie are together sharing that unique and contagious “Smith laugh” right now.

I know that heaven is full of Love and with Uncle Dave it just got a lot more Love. Yes I also remember the fun laughter that The Smith siblings had when one laughed they all laughed in unison so very funny. I also remember he loved to to pinch just enough skin to make us scream. And he would laugh. I will remember it fondly. The laughter is gone from earth but it is loud in heaven. God Bless you Gordon,Darryl,Garett and Duane may God be with you all at this time and forever. I won’t say Rest In Peace Uncle Dave I say Love an Laugh it up. Till We Meet Again Love Sharon
