To the Smalls Family,

It is with deep sadness I write to say how much you all have lost a caring and dear family member and friend. "Button", as he was affectionately called, was always smiling and had a kind word for everyone. He was special! It was a pleasure to be around him. I know he will be greatly missed. I will keep you all lifted up in prayer as you go through a difficult time.
