Guestbook

I met Ford when I was a teenager, working at Houchens in Glasgow.  I asked him about the personalized license plate on his car, and he told me he'd painted it.  The next thing I knew, he'd made one for me with my name on it, and thus began a special friendship.  He made other license plates for me to give gifts to friends of mine, and he visited with my parents and me at our home a couple of times.  I began taking him and his wife a fruit basket for Christmas, and did so for several years, before losing touch.  I am saddened to hear of his passing, but I smile when I think of Ford and the special man he was.  I feel very fortunate to have known him, and am blessed with some wonderful memories!

To the family and friends of Mr. Smith: I am so sorry I was not able to make Mr. Smith's viewing. I delivered his medicine every week at Highland Ridge for three years when I was employed at Medical Arts. Mr. Smith was always one of my favorites. I will certainly miss his spunky attitude and the kindness he showed to me. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
