Dear Ann, Brian, Janet, and families,
I am so sorry to hear about Rex. I have lost touch since we all grew up on Summit Street in Smithville, but
have lots of fun memories of our being neighbors and growing up together! My thoughts and prayers for each of you during this difficult time.

We are so very sorry to hear that Rex has passed. We loved him very much
