My entire Smith family hearts are saddened, but Officer Ronnie Smith is in heaven with our Lord and Savour Jesus Christ. He was a great father, husband, son, brother, and cousin. He died in the line of duty but i believe he loved his job. he will truly be missed by all who knew him and loved him. Rest in Peace my sweet cousin.
