About the Author: First-time author Jon Alfred Smith was born in Puyallup, Washington, and now resides in Albany, Oregon. “My wife was seriously ill for five years till she passed away last April. I was her full-time caretaker. I had free time between the times when she needed help, but I couldn’t leave, so I started this book, hoping to make a birthday gift of it to her. She passed away before it was finished and never got to read it. I think she would have liked it. We had been married for 45 years, three days and 19 hours.”
