Condolence & Memory Journal

For a tough Veteran he was a kind man and always had on a smile the times I saw him. Mostly I know how much he was loved by his family and how much you will all miss him. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Though I know he is smiling down on you all now its still painful to not have him here with you. Remembering all the happy times will help you to get through your sadness.

I remember the fun stay I had with my Godparents and cousins on Governor's Island and the ferry trips to NY NY. I especially remember how Uncle Chuck helped me during a very troubled time when I needed to leave Florida. All my cousins and their families are in our thoughts and prayers.

LT C. 'Uncle" Chuck White was a top notch soldier. He used to tell me "he was spit shined and squared away". His first wife, our beautiful 'Aunt"Mary, was my mother's sister: Ellen Monica O'Neil- Smith. Ray and Ellen Smith both past on 27 days apart in the Spring of 2013. Uncle Chuck and Aunt Mary stood as Godparents' to my sister Monica Adele Smith-Nguyen in 1953. When our family moved to the Philadelphia area in 1963, their family spent a week that summer showing us the City of New York. What fun our families had that summer, as they came to Philly for a week, also. The Whites' are good people and will be missed by all; until we reunite in heaven.
Love and prayers to all,
Raymond P. Smith

To "Yukon Charlie", the finest traveling companion a man ever had. Journeys always have an end, so we have to make the most of them while we can, and you certainly did. You were always creative, energetic, and eager to help family and friends. You will forever remain with us as a shining example.

Rest in Peace now, Papa.

-- your son and friend, "Smiling Jack"
