  1. Dear Ann and Family,
    Sid and I have lovely memories to refer to as we send our deepest sympathy to you.
    We recall times with you on Sun Eagle and adventures with your lovable dogs. Dinner with friends was always a pleasure. We hope that memories help you and yours in the days ahead.
    Sid and Lyda Smith
