During the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic resulting in local and state restrictions on public gatherings to achieve social distancing, the Smith family will hold a private memorial service for this valiant soldier of the Gospel.

Whenever a large swath of earth bound disciples are taken within a narrow time-frame, most notably 7 stewards, it should give great pause.
