To the whole Smith Family I would like to express my deepest Sympathy. Birdie was an extraordinary woman. She was a big influence in my life and she will be missed. I was very lucky to have had her as a role model growing up. She was the epitome of a hard working, independent, tough woman. I have tried to remember a time that she ever had a cross word for me and I can only remember one when I fell off Paps wagon into the pig sty and she was going to have to tell my Mom what I was doing playing in the mud. I can still hear her and my Mom laughing at what a mess I was. Those memories of Birdie will always live on in my mind and heart. May she rest in peace.
Aunt Birdie was an amazing lady who was always there for me. Miss n love you always Aunt Birdie
