Dear Aunt Norma & Family,
Our deepest condolences on Uncle Sherd’s passing – my favourite and Number One Uncle.
So many fond memories over so many years … Family get-togethers when we were young with cousins Paul, Brian and Lee (being just the two of us girls, for Kelly and I it was like visiting our pseudo brothers). Getting to know Uncle Sherd’s extended Smith family, and fun times spent when we were kids with ‘Uncle’ Pat, ‘Aunt’ Katie and their family – as well as a faint recollection of meeting his own Dad, Hart. Sunday dinners at your home or ours in Burlington. Uncle Sherd’s generosity in helping me buy my first car. His dry sense of humour, and Christmases when he’d ask what ‘prizes’ we got. Countless birthdays, weddings, anniversaries.
Being horse-crazy in my younger days, nothing was more appreciated than when Uncle Sherd would pick me up and drive Brian and I to the barn to spend an afternoon with Nellie and later on Flash, along with the other beautiful equine residents.
Visits to Weslemkoon were made memorable when Uncle Sherd would tour us around in his boat, pointing out significant sights along the way – including when we climbed a high rock embankment that offered a stunning view when we reached the top. A summer evening spent on another part of the Smith cottage property under the stars, where Uncle Sherd let out his famous wolf howl that was answered by distant cries – making us wonder how close that wolf pack might have actually been!
About a year ago I visited Uncle Sherd in hospital when he was having difficulties. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I walked in his room, but I was so touched when he looked up in recognition and exclaimed “Kim!”.
I know the Smith family has endless precious memories that will live on to be retold and always bring comfort. I hope you stay strong with the recollections of those wonderful times you all shared.
Love Kim & Trevor
