Reflections for Sheriff Robert J. Smith

How can I find out more? This is a slightly different account if what I have in our family records and we are doing our best to gather as much information as possible along with references.
Sheriff Smith is my paternal grandfather. My father was his second child and only son. I wish I'd been able to meet him.

I Pray for Peace for your family and those brave souls who have chosen to follow in your footsteps. I also Pray that the scum who murdered you shall burn forever in the lake of fire.

Amen.
