Brian Smith, left, his son, Jackson, his sister, Jennifer Combs, her son, Wyatt, and their mother and grandmother, Jean Smith, stand in front of a memorial erected to Pat Smith in the village of Asasan, Ghana, after he died aboard Comair flight 5191. Village elders had given him the title “sub chief for development”. The word "Nana" on the monument means "chief" and the inscription calls Smith "A U.S. volunteer who lived and died for this community."
