Smartley (Christine) of Dunedin, FL, grandchildren Rebecca Clewis (Larry) of Wilmington, NC and Frederick Smartley of Dunedin, FL, and one great grandchild, Sean Gannon Clewis.

Fred, so sorry to hear of your moms passing. I’m afraid I won’t be able to attend the mass on Thursday morning as I volunteer at All Children’s Hospital and could not find a replacement. Please know that she and you and your family are in my prayers, my sincerest condolences. Terry Marano
