Chris, I am sorry for your loss. I never met your father but I loved the way you spoke so highly of him and your mom both. He must have been a great man.

My brother-in-law and brother in Christ, Lawrence Smith, Jr., was one of the finest men I have ever known. He and my husband's dear sister were the most encouraging, giving and loving people. I am weeping today over our loss of them on earth, but I am rejoicing over the fact that I will be with them and Will and Jesus in Heaven soon.Dear children, grands, and great grands; you have inherited a great legacy of love and kindness. Follow their example, and you will do well in life. I love you and am with you in my heart today.

I remember Dr. Smith as my history professor at GTM Bldg at Louisiana Tech University many years ago. A tough taskmaster, but a pleasure to learn under him...also had made his acquaintenance again as I worked in the mayor's office in Ruston...Dr. Smith would come up every now & then to Mayor Hollingsworth's office...it was really great seeing him now and again, he really loved talking about his grandchildren, too. So sorry for the Smith family's loss-it's good to know thatt Dr. Smith really had a wonderful life and blessed so many others.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

My brother Dale and I both had Dr. Smith as a professor at Louisiana Tech and fondly remember lots of wonderful stories about "Ol Blue." He was a great professor -- made me love economics -- and a wonderful friend to our entire family. He was a very special person who enjoyed life and made those around him enjoy life. My thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time.

I am so sorry for your loss, but we all know he is more happy than he has been in a long time. He and Aunt Doris are together once again. He was very influential in my career and it was an honor for me to call him uncle. I will truely miss Uncle Junior and will continue to pray for his wonderful family.
