Joshua Frank Smedley, 3 months, suddenly yet peacefully departed this earth to enter Heaven on June 10, 2013. Born March 2nd, 2013, Josh spent his three short months here on earth loved by so many. His sweet demeanor, inquisitive eyes and bright smile warmed our hearts. Joshua loved sitting on Daddy’s lap at the dinner table and cuddling with Mommy.

Joshua is also survived by his cousins Aiden, Tyler, and Ryan as well as several loving great aunts and uncles and great grandparents.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be offered 9:00 AM Saturday, June 15, 2013 from Immaculate Conception Catholic Church with Fr. Lawrence Hayes officiating. Burial will follow in St. Matthew Catholic Cemetery.

I am part of the Immaculate Conception / Immaculata family so I have heard of your loss. I wish that I could diminish your pain, but that is beyond my power. However, as a parent who was confronted by risk of death to my two young sons who were both born with severe medical problems, I feel your pain and feel compelled to at least offer my empathy. May your faith in God and the promise of eternal life bring you comfort and bring you God’s peace.
Kevin

Dear Smedley Family! My Daughter, Kim Nolte Alex Nolte was in Ben’s class at Immaculata this year told me yesterday about the death of your sweet baby boy. My heart has been broken and I have been unable to get you off of my mind ever since. We have put your whole family on our prayer list at our Church! I can’t imagine the pain that you and your children are experiencing, but we know that our God is a God of love, even if we can’t understand His plan, and I pray that He will hold you in His loving arms as He is holding baby Joshua right now. May God Bless and keep you all!

Jimmy, I was shocked and sorrowed to hear about the passing of your son. I can’t imagine the pain that you and your wife are enduring and will pray that God will give you the strength to overcome the sadness. For whatever God’s reason, he has decided that He needed another angel. May God bless Joshua and your family.
