Aunt Ina and family,
Words cannot express how sad we are to hear of Uncle Bob’s passing. Our hearts go out to all of you. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
With Deepest Sympathy,
Pam and Mike
My deepest heartfelt condolences to Ina, Susan, Elaine, Brian, Donnie and Robbie on the loss of your husband and dad❣️And also to Keith and Sharon and family.
I remember well Bob’s quiet yet contagious sense of humour and his wonderful smile. A huge community loss. My thoughts and hugs to the Smith family❤️
I want to send all my family my deepest condolences for the lose of Uncle Bob. He was a dear man and a beloved uncle. His quiet demeanor created a calming presence to our crazy family and he was well respected and loved. You will be missed Uncle Bob….. Sherry Scott
Susan, Elaine, Brian, Donnie Robbie, and of course Mrs. Smith (Ina)…. I was so sad to hear of Mr. Smith’s passing. It has been so many years, more than I am willing to admit or accept. So much of my childhood visiting my grandparents (Dr. and Mrs. Thomas), at least in my mind, revolved around spending time down in the Glen at your farm. Fishing in the brook, up in the cow pastures, dinners with such fresh milk and stacks of white bread and butter! The party line phone, borrowing hockey equipment for my first attempt at ice hockey (played a year in college by the way!), maybe snatching a few cigarette butts out of the older kids car ashtrays!!, and most of all witnessing the love, dedication and discipline of a family that were true entrepreneurs and self made business people long before it was popular and vogue!
I will also cherish (again, if memory serves) Mrs. Smith playing the organ in the Hillsboro Church each Sunday, consistently bringing spiritual joy to the community each week.
All this to say, all of the Smith family had a profound influence on who I am today….family at the center, spirituality by the side, and a sense of true purpose and hard work in life surrounding it all.
Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Smith for your impact, whether you realized it or not.
