To our wonderful friends and loyal customers, CCFM vendors, employees, volunteers and our dedicated director, Richard McCarthy:
First of all, we love you dearly and miss seeing you all each Tuesday and Saturday at the market. Words can never convey the appreciation we feel for the love and kindness you have shown us. Your words of comfort through phone calls, emails, Facebook, food, cards and monetary gifts have all been so helpful and has kept us going each day. You each have set a high standard for us to follow…maybe one day we will be able to be the giver rather than the receiver. God has taken us taken us in a different direction right now, but we hope you will continue to purchase our products. We are taking it one step at a time to get our products out there to you. Kleinpeter Farms Dairy is dedicated to preserving that same quality product that Smith Creamery brought to you each week. We have been involved each time that they have processed, we’ve tasted it and all of us agree that it’s the same wholesome milk that we delivered to you before. The chocolate milk is made by our original recipe and the grandchildren say “it’s good to have Smith Creamery chocolate milk again”.
Many memories and relationships have been made on Tuesday at Uptown Square and on Saturday at Magazine & Girod! We feel that each of you are part of our extended family and we care about you, like you care about us. Each Tuesday & Saturday mornings, we think about our special customers we would be seeing. It has been a very emotional time, so please continue to pray for us as we make decisions about the future. With tears rolling down my face, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We will never forget the generosity and friendship you have shown us. It will forever be in our hearts and on our minds. May God bless all of you for your goodness.
The Smith Creamery Family….Warren & Sandra, Travis Smith, Michelle Smith & Tommy Hickman & Family
