Card of Thanks

I desire to thank the many friends and neighbors for the many kindnesses shown us during the long protracted sickness of my wife. But those I desire to thank most are those who watched with me through the long, weary nights of waiting for weeks before the end came. I also desire to thank those who assisted and watch with me through the short sickness of my step-mother who died at my house just two weeks after my wife’s death.   - Q. A. Smallin

City Friend Amos Smith dies at home

Donna Osborn, Headliner News

            A light went out in Ozark Jan. 13 when Amos Smith, 70, died suddenly at home. After running several local errands, which included a stop at City Hall, ha and Kate, his wife of 51 years, returned home where Amos stoked the fire in the couple’s wood stove one last time. Moments later, Kate found him there and called for help. Efforts by Ozark firefighters to revive him at the scene were unsuccessful. A look back at the recorded minutes of the Ozark Board of Alderman meetings would reveal one constant: Amos Smith. It was a rare and important occasion when Amos missed a meeting. City Clerk Lana Wilson remembered Amos with fondness and respect. “Amos was like a council member,” she said. “He can’t be replaced. I think (Mayor) Donna (McQuay) even had a chair taken out in his honor. Wilson remembers the bearded man that appeared to be the quintessential curmudgeon as honest and sincere. “Amos was the type of person that if you got a compliment from him, it was an honor,” she said. “He saw things for what they were. He was straight forward. And if you goofed up, he let you know.” It was not uncommon for Amos Smith to rattle the cages at City Hall when he thought someone had goofed up. He often took the podium during meetings and asked poignant questions that probed city law-makers for more information. Something that Mayor Donna McQuay appreciated. “There wasn’t a better watchdog over the citizens’ money than Amos Smith,” she said. “I don’t know how to express how much I am going to miss him. Not only at city council, but as a friend. He was Ozark’s checks and balances.” In that official capacity, he sat on the city’s Public Funding Board that oversees certain capital projects. He took that job seriously, said city treasurer Alice Edwards. “Amos cared a lot about the city and about the employees,” she said. “He always stood up for us. He was always to the point and never pulled any punches. He said what he thought and I admired that about him. I admired him for speaking his mind.” Amos refrained some from speaking his mind during board of aldermen meetings after Kate was elected to the board in 2001 representing Ward 2. McQuay said that Kate agreed to remain on the board and continue with her plans to see re-election to a third two-year term in April. More than 20 years ago, Amos and Kate Smith moved to Ozark after retiring. Before that Amos was a farmer and worked for Carnation Foods in Trenton. He was active in the Grain Miller’s Union and talked often about his responsibilities as a union arbitrator. He was a champion of the hard-working average American.“ McQuay chocking back the tears, said he lived up to that ideal each day, including his last. “Amos was in City Hall twice that day, laughing with everyone and jerking our chains. That was Amos.” She said Amos has exchanged his chair in council chambers for a more important one. “Now he’ll balance out Heaven with some authority too. I am sure he’s got a good chair up there.”

“The Gardener”

            The first daffodils of the season are beginning to show. Bright green sparks planted in rows by the curb. Where the busy street meets the yard at the end of the world. They planted them together, grandma and grandpa and I can hear him growling at her planting too deep or too high or too near or too far, then finished the rest of the task as the early fall day turned to night.

            It makes sense, then, that his would be the first to show.. Too contradictory to agree that flowers belong in the spring. Too stubborn to know it’s winter. The yard awaits. The goldfish pond is dark. Asleep. Waiting for heavy footsteps of worn brown work boots to come with pellets of food for spring.

            His great grandchildren remember the pond. After growling about The price of beans, the damned democrats, the rotten ways of the world, He stopped for a moment to gently fish the floating baby bird from the still top of the water. Too late for rescue, he distracted the girls by showing them the food. The fish fought to the surface when they heard his voice. The girls have forgotten the bird. Instead, they speak with awe about the man who could pet the fish. They remember the bright orange, the coolness of water in August. The way the fish slipped from their grasp when they tried to hold the,

            The porch swing sits silent in the January still Remembering days of laughter and rocking and cold iced tea. It was here that he showed me my first hummingbird, tiny wings buzzing . . . And I asked - how - grandpa grumbled. You can hang out the feeder, but they won’t come unless they trust you.

            Trust. Love.

            From the porch, we can hear the police scanner, chattering about the activated of the town. He listened for our names, he said. And laughed. Always laughter.

            I listen for his laughter and hear the plaintive mews From the cat named Tom curled up in the cold metal lawn chair, watching, waiting, confused. But knowing. Animals have a way of known, Grandpa said.

            The spring will come, and the flowers will bloom. The trees will fill with shady green leaves, and the wind will tangle the chimes while the hummingbirds feed.

            The boots lie empty.

            I stand in the cold and remember the Gardener. He plants the seed, feeds the corn and the sparrows. From the tiniest bird to the tallest mimosa. He cares for us all (Love, nurture, defend and protect). And at the end of the seasons, He carried us home.

By Stephanie Marshall, granddaughter.
