SET IN STONE: Woodham, Smith partner to honor departed loved one

August 2, 2014

COLUMBIA CITY — For those who have suffered the loss of a loved one, the memory of that beloved is tucked away in the hearts and minds of those who miss them.

Although special occasions and holidays might spark a specific memory of that departed family member or friend, memories are not subject to designated days on a calendar.

That sentiment rings true with Terry Smith, owner of Smith & Sons Funeral Home in Columbia City. So when the opportunity came about for Smith to help a classmate honor his late father, Smith reached out with a suggestion.

“I have known Greg (Gregory) Woodham for a number of years,” said Smith. “We went to school together. I knew his dad had died when he was a kid, but I didn’t know how.”

Woodham is a Columbia City native. His mother, Madge (Schumaker) Woodham and her family are also from Columbia City.
