I have such wonderful memories of my time at Furman and organ lessons with Dr. Smith and theory classes with Mrs. Smith. My deepest sympathy and prayers for you all. Blessings and thanksgiving for both.

I first met Lindsay during the Christmas holidays of 1981. His daughter Reed and I were an item at the time, and we've been an item ever since (we'll celebrate our 30th anniversary next June). I still remember watching Clemson play for the national championship that New Year's Day, with Dad, in Greenville. We weren't football fanatics, but it was Clemson! Dad was truly a kind, gentle man. A man of firm principles, but gentle in spirit. It was a privilege and an honor to have known him.

Lindsay Smith was a tremendous influence on my musical career as an organist, church musician, theorist, and as a teacher. His gentle guidance and positive support are treasured memories to me. After my graduation from Furman in 1957 I continued to maintain contact with him and his wife (an equal influence on my musical career) and when I returned to the area after very successful years in Chicago and Interlochen, MI it was a delight to reconnect with them personally. Lindsay touched thousands of lives in a very positive was and his memory will live in the lives of us, his disciples.

Lindsay Smith was a tremendous influence on my life. He was my mentor and friend through my 4 years at Furman and continued to be a supporter and an inspiration to me for many years thereafter. It was a great pleasure to reconnect with him and with Charlotte when I returned to the western Carolinas after being away, making my mark in the musical world and discovering the wonders of life. He was very special to me and I will always treasure beloved memories of his gentle guidance and encouragement.

Everytime I listen to or sing the Bach St. Matthew Passion I think of Dr. Smith. I recall his reference to this work in a music history class and how he hoped no one would get through Furman without at least some familiarity with this masterpiece. Thanks to you, Dr. Smith and your wife Charlotte, I love this work and so many other musical masterpieces as well.
