Sending prayers & love to my Nevada family!! Uncle Bruh aka Smitty was always the fun uncle. He always had valuable lessons & memories to share. He always remembered everyone's birthday & would gladly recite them accurately. I will cherish my time spent with him over the years. Especially the last time talking to him on the phone. He fought a courageous battle but now it's time for him to rest in paradise. Fly high Uncle because you have earned your wings. Love Always Fawn💖🌹!!
