I will forever have fond memories of the family vacations that we took when I was a child with Paul and Dot Smith and their kids. We would stay at a river or a lake and have a great time fishing and swimming. My parents (Art and Jean Reffner) were life-long friends of Paul and we spent many times together as families - church activites, picnics, and family get-to-gethers. I will always cherish Paul's Godly presence. He will be greatly missed by me and my husband, Bob. We can rejoice in knowing that he is with God, Jesus, his Savior, his wife, Dot, and his many relatives. Rest in peace and we will see you again.
