Reflections for Police Officer II Michael Wayne Smith

I just found this page. Michael was a great friend. We think of him often. His sense of humor was one of a kind. He was just a good person. He was the real deal. I know it’s random but a few months before he passed he helped us move in this dining room table we just bought. He was busy that day but he made time. It’s a simple memory but that’s the kind of friend he was. His passing really impacted all of us.

Is there any way to donate still? The little boy left behind is about the same age as mine and I just can't imagine. I saw an old video today from doughnutoperator on youtube and wanted to look up what happened to Ofc. Smith. Finding out he passed was hard, even though I don't know him and this is several years delayed.
