The 11-year-old boy, Terry “Juju” Dewayne Smith Jr., will at last be mourned by all touched by his loss.
In a service organized by his father, Terry Smith Jr. will receive a public memorial service today, in Lake Elsinore, at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, July 25, at Lamb’s Fellowship, 21901 Railroad Canyon Road in Lake Elsinore.
Smith Jr., first reported missing in early July, was later discovered buried in a shallow grave on his family’s property.
After a private memorial offered by his mother, last weekend, Terry’s father has come forward, in a local press conference, to invite all who helped search for the boy, and all touched by his loss.
“Terry Jr. loved picnics…this is one big picnic for everyone who helped search for him…to say their goodbyes.” Smith Sr. said.
