Bill Smith pays weekly visits to the grave site of his wife, Linda Mae Smith, at Eno HIll Cemetery in Colebrook, where she lies next to her parents, Harry and Elizabeth Palmer. In November 2005 Linda Mae Smith went in to Hartford Hospital for surgery on her collarbone, but sometime during a 30-minute window in the recovery room she suffered a catastrophic loss of oxygen. She fell into a coma and died three weeks later. Four years later, Smith still has questions about how and why his wife died.
