Tombstone Tuesday - January 26, 2010

Lucile Mae Smith Daughter of Everett and Lillian Smith

Isn’t she cute? She was Lucile Mae Smith, was born on October 29, 1924. She’ll always remain a six year old girl. She died in the days before penicillin when she became ill with streptococcus. She died on March 21, 1934 at 11:50 PM.

She missed growing up to be a big sister to her brother, Harold. Today people do not generally die of Streptococcus because they recieve an antibiotic and they get better.  We missed out on knowing our Aunt and Dad missed out on having a sister.  I think that is why he decided to have such a big family all those years later... Well, the real reason was, he wanted to have a son so our Smith name continued. It just happened that he got four daughter before he had a son.  Then they decided that Mark, his first son, needed a brother. It just would not be fair to raise him alone with all of the girls!  Bless you Lucile, I wish I had known you!
