I will forever remember uncle Alex as the man with the perpetual ear to ear smile! I think it was that smile that gave him away when he was undercover as Santa Claus for the annual Christmas parties that he and auntie Margaret put on for all of us wee wains. He was a man of few words, but the words he spoke were always hopeful, positive and generous of spirit. He will be sorely missed, but never forgotten. Unfortunately we are not able to attend the service, but know that he is top of mind for us. Most sincerely, Ken & Joyce Smith
