Friends Kansas City , Kansas

To the family of Robert Smith, we send our deepest condolences and pray that you have a quick recovery from your loss. Robert was a nice man and we appreciated his humor. He mowed grass occasionally for us and was quick about it. We knew Robert because of our neighbors Bill and Annie Rozel. Our thoughts and prayers for all of you. Sincerely John and Carrie Boorem
