The moment has been determined by God and the task has been given to the Majestic Family to advise everyone, that William Edward Smith exited the Atrium Health Mercy in Charlotte, NC early Sunday morning, leaving his bags behind but holding the hands of two angels dressed in White. No one said anything because all knew where he was going.
On Wednesday, November 3, 2021 the formal “farewell” Graveside Ceremony will be called to order at 2pm, in the Evergreen Community Cemetery in Evergreen, NC. One may wonder why Mr. Smith would leave his earthly belongings here when he departed this past Sunday. However, those close to him can find comfort understanding that where William is now, there’s no need for any garments or shoes because he has a pair of Golden Slippers and a Long White Robe.
Left to forever cherish his memories are his wife: Jeanette Smith of the home; two daughters: Jemetric L. Smith and Hope V. Smith (Corey); seven grandchildren: Zora Frink, Patience Daniels, Zamya Lesane, Joshua Shipley, Asad Hope, Joan Brown, Amir Hope, and Kiyah Smith; his mother: Kiniee Mason of Boardman, NC; four brothers: Rev. Michael Smith (Brenda) of Chadbourn, NC, Fred Mason, Jr. and Walter Mason, both of Whiteville, NC and Albert Smith of Lumberton, NC; three sisters: Marvor Evans of Whiteville, NC, Pam Geiger (Otis) of Hallsboro, NC and Rose Pettiway (Kenny) of Massachusetts; special daughters: Lateisha Billings, Vanesia Lewis (Juan), Tonya Drake (Vincent), Evita Chestnut (Damon), Latoya Ladson and Monica McIntyre; special niece: Jelesia “Lele” Chestnut; special nephews: Lamont Smith, Samuel Smith, A.J. Smith, Preston McIntyre, Julius Caulder, Josiah Billings and Emmanuel Gause; sisters-in-law: Shirley Smith and Gail Chestnut, both of Evergreen, NC, Mildred Smith of Lumberton, NC, Tina Booker (Kelvin) and Crystal Smith, both of Hickory, NC; two brothers-in-law: Preston Smith (Lisa) and Floyd Smith (Barbara) of Highpoint, NC and a host of other nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends.
