James Earl Smith

James Earl “Smittie” Smith of Pascagoula passed away at Singing River Hospital March 29th, 2019 with his wife and two daughters by his side.

Jimmy loved his family and friends. He is survived by his wife of 59 years, Barbara “Pug” Smith and daughters Leigh (Juan) Garcia and Cynthia (Pat) Fulford, five grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren.

His favorite song was; She and I by Alabama

“She and I”

She and I live in our own little world
Don't worry about the world outside
She and I agree
She and I lead a perfectly normal life
Ah but just because we aren't often seen socially
People think we've got something to hide.
But all our friends know we're just a little old fashioned
She and I
Oh ain't that great
Ain’t it fine
To have a love someone that others can't find
Ain’t it wonderful to know all we ever need is just the two of us
She and I
So wonderful
She and I
She and I share with everybody else
The same wants, needs and desires
She and I save
She and I pay on everything we acquire
Ah but just because we aren't often seen separately
People think we live one life.
It’s hard for them to see how anyone could be as close as
She and I
