It's sad that sometimes, the only way you can catch up with folks from your past is by finding their obituaries. Dr. Holland was the second veterinarian whom I worked for as a new veterinary technician, at what was then the Emergency Veterinary Clinic in Vienna, VA, during the time that the EVC moved from its first location in what used to be a 7-11 into its new spacious facility next to the Wolf Trap Motel. He took me on for my internship as a vet technician almost the night before my internship was to start, when my first internship fell through at the last minute. I remember him as a laid-back country gentleman. I didn't have much experience with vets at that time, but I always thought he was one of the good ones. I learned a lot from him.

Smokey, you will be deeply missed here on earth but we have comfort in knowing that you are reunited in heaven with your beloved Alice. ?

We will miss you so much Smokey. I will always remember going flying together and target practice on the farm and listening to your poetry. But more than that I will remember how I felt when we spent time together. Always safe and comfortable and joyful. Thank you for sharing your many gifts with me. Love and miss you, Erin M.

Growing up, my Uncle Smokey helped so much to foster my love of being in nature. I have especially fond memories of the canoe camping trips I went on with him and my father. Smokey also taught me a lot about animals and wildlife. He was a wealth of information; from snakes to dogs to horses, he knew so much and was always willing to share his knowledge. Smokey was a loving, kind, patient man who always had a sparkle in his eye. I love him very much and will miss his presence in this world.
