Words cannot indistinctly express how hurt WPC and the Smith family are right now, after a sudden impact so close to home. Praying for strength and healing for all those that were affected by Mathew leaving us to soon. It feel good to say that I was connected to a man of dignity and bending principle, who was full of wisdom, so that is why I associated myself as 3rd cousin in the WPC family. Still missed, loved and always near. (Smitty's voice): Got 2 words for you, "MY MAN".
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

To The Family of Matt Smith (Smitty), Sending condolences for the loss of a soft soul. May everyone feel the presence of God during this season of change. Words cannot express my sorrow. Thanking God for our season as one, and combining our families together during our life on this earth. Enjoyed our season of bowling as well. I remember you saying back in the late 1990's "You learn by doing, and grow by experiencing." We both learned a great deal during our 90's season! Our loved one is now resting with our heavenly father, awaiting our arrival. Love everyone! Love, Donnita Diggs
