To Elaine and The Smith Family:

I've learned there are no words to make you feel better in the time of bereavement. Through Prayer and Fellowship, God will send Mercy and Grace to help you to live with the lost of your Mother-Mrs. Essie Smith. God will transform your sorrow into "Peace that surpass all earthly understanding". Then, you'll know "Some How" Mother is alright and she is safe in God's Heavenly Embrace.

Of course, we missed Our Loving Mother-Mrs.Essie Smith, Great Women of God, Nurse and Teacher, so it's OK to cry, to hurt, to be sad. However, please understand, through experience I have learned to "Trust in God" then "bye and bye" Life will get better" and you will gain relief and comfort.

As for now, God is with you every second,minute and hour of the day.

Love your Orlando Family

Your mother will always hold a special place in my heart.  She has always treated me as if I was one of her children.  she helped to mentor me during her years at Shelby Medical Center.  We have shared many laughs together and I have fond memories of your dear sweet mother.  She will be deeply missed.

Love you all
