This correspondence is being sent at the request of the Adjutant General, Bishop Matthew Williams as per our Presiding Bishop Charles E. Blake.
It is with great regret that I inform you of the passing of Bishop Alfred Marlin Smith, Prelate of the Michigan Great Lakes Second Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction and the Vice Chairman of Michigan/Canada Council of Bishops. The arrangements are being made for the services at this time. As soon as the Adjutancy is made aware of the final arrangements, we will pass the information on to you in a timely matter.
Let us be in fervent prayer for the family during this most difficult time. If I can assist you further concerning this matter, please do not hesitate to call my office at 501.712.0048.
In His Service,
Bishop Robert G. Rudolph, Jr.
