In Loving Memory of a Great Man

As my Friend and Family Member Chad T. Smithling was going to work On Saturday March 24, 2018 approximately 8:15 pm.  He was suddenly killed by a vehicle making an illegal turn into the Y.V. AmPm.  As he leaves behind Three daughters, a loving family full of brothers, sisters, nieces,nephews, grandchildren, and  true friends we struggle to put him to rest properly.  WE are asking our community to come together and donate to this family to be able to not worry about this kind of cost.  Its unfortunate, depressingly sad to come together under such circumstances.  Please help us put him to rest and take care of his ten year old daughter HOPE! 
My final words to my dear friend.
I wish I could give you many more years.  I wish I could erase away all of your tears.  I want to take away all of your pain.  I want to give you sunshine in the rain.  May each new day be a perfect gift.  May love surround you, may your spirits lift.  If someone had to describe you so many words come to mind. Beauty and grace, a heart so kind.  You radiate warmth like a blazing fire. You are courage and wisdom.  You truly inspire.  You attract like a magnet beautiful things.  You sparkle and shine like a diamond ring.  You light up a room when you walk in.  If someone feels sad you can make them grin.  You are elegant and charming.  You know right from wrong.  You are the melody from a beautiful love song.  You are a breath of fresh air on a hot summer's night.  When there is darkness you turn on the light.  I do not want these words to make your cry.  I do not want to ever say goodbye my dear friend.  I believe miracles really do come true.  No one deserves one more than you.  Please know how many lives you touch.  You are loved so much.
