I'm not old enough to remember Smitty but he was one of the deacons at the church where I grew up. Apparently he used to say "help us, Lord, help us" a lot because my grandmother, in her stress or woeful or funny moments would often shake her head and say "help us, Lord, help us, as Smitty say." I don't know if said Smitty had a Patton on the phrase but she ALWAYS gave him credit. This morning I found myself deeply inhaling and letting out "help us Lord, help us, as Smitty say." Because Smitty and my grandmother might be listening.
