Maxwell Smith and family , formally from Dartmouth Nova Scotia ,Presently in Edmonton Alberta working in the oil Sands. As a teenager i would spend my summers with my grandparents at my great grandmothers house in Comeaus Hill. While i was there i got an offer to work at the Murphys fish plant , and i accepted. After work everyone who worked at the plant wanted to have fun. this is where jr. came in , i got a call to pick me up to go have fun with Jr. and Donald and Joseph , all 4 of us were driving around and doing stupid things ,, After driving for a while Jr. decided that Max need a girl and JR . said he knew a few , so off we went driving around from house to house to try to find Max a girl , I must have been 15 or 16 , and JR was set on getting me a girl , so we went to a girls house and no one was home so off to the next one , we pulled up on the side of the road and there was a woman hanging cloths on the line , JR yelled to her , " Hay is Ada Home , and the Reply was Ada's home and Ada's staying home , and Jr. and Donald and Joseph and I were laughing so hard we were crying , so off we went to the next one . Jr would not stop until he succeded. I do not remember where we ended up but every time going with Jr was so much fun , and lots of stories , crazy , crazy , crazy , fun , i will miss my friend Jr. thanks for the memories and picking me up , at my grandparents you are one of a kind , And it is very sad you are no longer with us , the world could use lots more like you ,


Your Friend forever
