Bishop Smith

I wish I had the capacity to adequately relay my feelings about Nick Smith. I've never met anyone who personifies the message of the gospel more than he. He would, and very often did, give the shirt off his back to anyone who may have stood in need. I learned much from this man who served as my Bishop and my friend at a time when big decisions were being made that would alter the direction of my life forever. At his funeral, one of his daughters said that his final words to her were, "Be faithful. Stay close in your marriage. Stay close to your testimony. Be faithful." I love Bishop Smith. I miss him. I hope to grow up to be like him one day.
