Seems that in death as well as interactions we just missed the boat on things. I know he loved to argue and debate with others and that was not all there was to him but that was how he will be remembered by many.

I can't say I got to know Smitty, even in the "online" sense. Looking through his most recent posts I found that he had responded to one of my early posts, a kind and generous response to a silly newbie penturner, I know it is one of the many posts that made me feel welcome here. I truly believe that it is these quiet acts of kindness that make a man. As Tony has already suggested, if there is a direct way to help Mrs. Smith, I am also "in", otherwise it appears that I can (and will) help indirectly by adding some of Smitty's kits to my next ExoticBlanks order and make the most beautiful and high quality pens that I can make, I'm sure that would make Smitty happy. I offer my condolences to his family and friends. Rest in peace Mr. Smith, you will be missed.

Just read about Leroy's death on a Email from Exotic Blanks. I was saddened by the new. Leroy was a character who loved a good discussion. I bought many kits from and found to be easy to talk to and get advice from. I will treasure a Pen he made and sent to even more now. God's Speed Leroy you'r a good man.

Tony, According to an email from Ed at Exotic Blanks, Smitty's wife is indeed alive and will continue to receive percentages of the sales of items from Smitty's Pen Works through Exotic blanks.
