Our Patriarch, Perry Anderson Smith, III, has finished his incomparable journey.

He lived a life of service to others. He was a leader in the civil rights movement, a pastor for 52 years at First Baptist Of North Brentwood and a lecturer at Howard University School of Divinity.

He was a husband, a brother, our oldest cousin, a mentor and confidant to many. But most of all he was a friend of God.

We will miss him dearly.
