Arthur Smith was a good man. He was a friend who helped us many times and always looked out for us. He shared the bounty from his garden each year and taught us much about Golden Valley. We always looked forward to visiting with Arthur and hearing all the local news. He loved God and his country very much. There is no question that he is in Heaven today having fun with his old friends and family who went there before him. We will miss him very much.
