In Manchester, hundreds lined the interstate overpasses waving American flags, shouting USA and some people became overwhelmed by the moment and began to cry.
The funeral for Smith was held Saturday in his hometown in Georgia. Smith leaves behind a wife and three young daughters, but he didn’t leave them without a fight. He underwent several surgeries before he died.
