    The Keith Smith & Family wish to express our deepest sympathy for your loss. I know that she will be dearly missed. Flora wanted to send flowers but we didn’t not get them off in time. We are therefore sending a memorial in honor of Mabel. I know that Susan has told Flora of Mabel’s passing and she was very sad and I know that she would have been there if possible.
