Dr. Rupert A Francis, Snr, Captain Friends, I am making this entry on behalf of my young friend and Brother from another Mother: Don Smalling. The truth is I have not known him and your Family Members for a long time, yet over that time I have come know more about him and respect him for his directness, intelligence and guidance in many matters, to include family & business. I have also found out that you light up a room (Jovial) wherever you are and you are not afraid to speak your mind. I have also come to realize you love your children, your immediate and extended Family and most importantly you love the Lord! I have said all that to say this, you must have learned this from somebody over the years; therefore when I hear you speak about your Father. I know it is him and therefore I join you in saluting him in death, tho he still lives in you. I made that point for two reasons 1: I did not have a Father such as this.2. As a result I have made my lifelong commitment to devote my time to a Father to all my children especially my boys and men in general; to help, all men, but especially Jamaican Men to take the lead in their households as God intended. So that we can set an example for the whole Human Race. Lastly, Lay down and take your Rest Mr. Smalling , your work on earth is done; now you can live vicariously through children like Don. Therefore, until we all meet again: May God Hold you in the Palm of his Great Big hands: Amen!!! Doc

For you my father, I thank the lord I remember the day I was adopted into the family, the only JC boy growing up amongst your Smalling boys, never one day I felt like I was less than a Smalling, for I had to stand in the Ranks and listen to the teaching of the word of God until you fall asleep. You always reminded me that I was never to forget God in my journey as a Scientist and that I will never forget. I am proud to be your son, to know you was a honour and I will carry with me the knowledge you pass on to us. Sleep well, job well done I am sure your are in the right place. Love you always my father.

Lenford, as a first child, you developed an attitude of protector for all your siblings and being the loving, caring person you were you protected us in many different ways. This attitude was carried into your family life where all could depend on you for protection. You taught many things using a bad experience as a teaching ground. You were pleasant and strong and one could always expect a joke from you to make a moment pleasant. We will remember you for this and many more things ( how could I forget how you rode those strong horses at late teen up to about age 20.) That's why lots will be remembered which are not written here. You trusted in God ....we had lively discussions. Francine remembers "I'd be jiggered" 'Craig remembered 'you were 'chill' We fondly remember you.

Cant believe im writing this but there comes a time in life when we all have to face reality and accept even the unbearable truth. There are so many good things to say about daddy and there is just not enough time to say them. So i will summarize it all and say that daddy was always a tower of strength to those around him and in all my life i have never met a person as kind as daddy and his family. Thank you daddy for the many laughter and kind gestures you gave me and my family over the years. The history lessons about Manley and dem other "poppy cocks" who you use to tell us about and religious education not even the philosophers or theologians could impart so clearly. I wont hear "I'll be jiggered" anymore and all those other things you would say that would make me smile and even burst into laughter but I'll be fine soon because i know for sure you are in a better place right now, enjoying what we all hope to enjoy one day. Love you daddy you are one peron we all would hope to have with us for as long as we live but then reality steps in and says otherwise. Until we meet again daddy gwaan chill wid mommy deh and buss big laugh. You will always be in my heart.

Mr. Lenford Smalling was to me a very affable and sociable person. He always greeted me we with warmness and genuine interest. Because of his moustache grooming he looked somewhat like the wise man of old, Confucius. So that was my personal name for him when we would meet. I would say, Confucius, or Wise One, and he would set the accolade aside with the grace and humility of one truly wise. I am in debit of his friendship, even though it was I who moved away. Rest well Mr. Smalling, and await the trumpet of your awakening, and may the good in which you walked be accounted unto you for righteousness before Jesus the Just... Amen.

Grandpa, I am thankful for me and you playing together. I really wanted more time with you, but God had other plans. Don't worry though, I know we will play and talk again in heaven. I love you grandpa.

Brother Smalling! In your own unique way, you have taught and shown all of us what it truly means and is, to live and love in truth and in deed. You led a simple yet powerful life in that you gave us all you had, not because you had it to give, but rather because of who the Lord made you to be. A man with a big kind heart, who put the needs of others above his. A man who stopped at nothing to offer help to others. A man who loved in spite of and not because of. A man I not only admired, but have come to know and call my Dawdeh. I consider myself proud to be a part of your living legacy, and will forever thank God for you. Take a bow Dawdeh. You have done well!

Daddy!!! There are no words to say how we are feeling just now….You are truly missed…You were a beautiful soul, I never met another person like you. You were always pleasant and smiling, NO was never in your vocabulary. You will be greatly missed it’s so hard not seeing you in the morning or in the evening saying “hello kitten” 😔. Daddy you were more than a neighbour, thank you for treating me and my family just like we were a part of your family. My family and I send our condolences to your wife and family in this time of grieving. Rest In Peace Daddy 🙏🏼

My dear cousin, I am so happy I got to see you 2years ago. I remember your kindness and love shown to me those days when I was a student at UWI and needed a home away from home. Now The Lord has chosen to take you to your best home. One day we will meet again.

When we lose someone so close, it seems impossible to let them go. God has other plans so we trust in His will as time will show. While you grieve know that in the darkest hour is when his love abounds to give you perfect peace. Be strong.

One of the reasons we enjoyed going by Don's house was the opportunity to meet with and talk with Mr. Smalling. His counsel, information and friendly humor will be surely missed. Walk good my brother and friend.

Mr. Smalling was like a father figure to me throughout the years. I've known him most of life, grew with him and his lovely family whom I adopted as my own. I always find his signature expressions very amusing such as 'to poppycock' and 'I be jiggad' :-). He always had some words of wisdom to share and for that I was grateful. Walk good Mr. S...until next time. Say hi to daddy for me 😊
Odette Odette
You were such a jovial soul. Never a dull moment with you around. Every second with you was appreciated. In life I love you and in death you will always be in my heart and memory
Daddy, we thank you for everything that you have done for your family. You were always a stickler for discipline and though life had it's challenges, you never gave up or gave in and played your part as an exceptional and unique father to the end. Thank you Daddy.
