Goodbye to a dear friend

Greensburg — April 29 was a sad day.

My longtime friend Scottie Smith passed away. Scottie was a gentleman and a scholar. He and I graduated from the same university and for a brief period of time were business partners. Scottie and I studied under some of the same professors  for several years. We also attended the same church (Clarksburg Christian) where Scottie served as a Deacon. Scottie and his wife Norma, also a teacher and graduate of the same university, were faithful members of the church for many years.

Rest in peace Scottie.
