*SAFE* 05/21/15- A volunteer writes: Smokey is a senior gent who once had a home, and is now in search of another. Smokey is handsome, but reserved. He sits in the corner, probably thinking of what he once had, and wishing for another chance at happiness. Could you be the one to make Smokey’s wish come true?
