"We've sung in groups with them. We love them,” Diane Morrell said. “So we would not pass up an opportunity to do this — ever.”
From his bed and through an open window, Blaine Smith waved to the crowd of parents and children who sang Christmas carols to him Monday evening.
"It's a whole tie-in to the light of Christ and the healing power, and we've just felt very, very blessed," Blaine said.
Debra Smith said she is grateful to have the time to say goodbye.
“We have time. We’ve been making more memories,” she said.
The Smiths say their neighbors have always been friends, but this year they became angels.
An account has been set up to help the Smiths pay for medical expenses. It is the Blaine Jay Smith Memorial Fund at Wells Fargo Bank.
