One thought on “Charles “Kenny” Smith”

  1. Kathleen & Family: I have many, many fond memories of you and the family while living in Chicago and working at the same real estate office. Most of them are filled with HUGE laughter!!! Please know that you and the family are in our thoughts and prayers during this most difficult time. No advice on grief, as I haven’t come close to figuring it out! All our love, Jan & Family
