Dr. Smith was my family doctor at AHEC and at Available Medical. He was such a great listener for this mom of two. Always there for my family with full compassion and great advice. My grown children and I have always been in awe of his medical knowledge and his kind spirit. He will be missed. He would talk of his children in our visits and share parenting advice. Wish he could have known that the son became a teacher and the daughter a doctor. Thanks for sharing your husband and father.

Joan and I were in Nashville, Tennessee when we learned of Terrald's passing and could not get home in time for the funeral. I am so sorry.

I held Terrald in high esteem as a person and especially as a physician. His class of residents was a very very good group.
As an American I respected his service to this country and his bravery under enemy fire. Many people in his company were benefitted by his compassionate care and probably were able to return alive to this country due to his bravery.
It is a shame that people like him were castigated the public as he returned.
May God bless you and your family and provide comfort in the days and years to come.
Again, I am sorry we could not be there for his service.

He was such a sweet and special man. He was our doctor and he delivered 3 of my children. To my children he was not just a doctor, as we would drive down Rogers Avenue past the clinic my kids would say, " Let's stop and see our best friend Dr. Smith!". Honestly, he set the bar so high I have yet to find another doctor like him. As a young mom with 4 children and no insurance it was a huge struggle for me and countless times he put a big NC (no charge) on our chart! God bless him for his kind and generous spirit. My thoughts and prayers are with the family at this most difficult.
