By Carol Beal Smith
This album set represents my father's life. He wrote, “I have been collecting these pictures and placing them in an album, without annotation, for years. When my daughter, Carol, saw them, she wanted to properly preserve them in an album and explain what each photo meant. She did such a great job doing the work. It truly warms my heart, not because she did the work, but because she wanted to. It is my wish that my family, friends, and descendants enjoy these albums, for they tell the story of Who I Am.” It has been two years since his passing…and the task is finally complete!
