    “It just felt like God was sending me this way,”  said Virginia Smith of Taylorsville.  “Because, it’s all working out.” Smith prepared packages for the soldiers of her son-in-laws Army Unit out of Fort Hood, now serving in Iraq.  She was able to do this with money raised through; her church, All Saint’s Catholic, her pinochle club and her family and friends.
