Owen was such a warm, kind person and we will remember him fondly. Sending love from Chicago.
I am so sad and sorry to hear of your loss. OJ was my first true mentor and always an amazing advocate for his students. He will be missed greatly.
It is unfortunate I meet the most amazing individuals only after one has been diagnosed with a serious life limiting illness. I enjoyed my visits to the Smith household as despite his illness Owen still kept his quick wit. May the entire Smith family be at peace knowing a special angel is watching over you from the heaven above.
So sorry to hear of Dr. Smith's passing. I worked with him at Children's Mercy many times before I retired. The photo you chose shows his sense of humor and kindness. Peace be with you all at this time.
Maura and family--
I loved watching Owen at work. His tutelage has impacted my skills immensely. He will be missed. He was a true friend. Your family has been in my prayers this week.
