Not sure what to say?

He was such a great doctor and a fine man. He was a joy to be around and I am fortunate to have known him.

Dr smith delivered me and both my girls ..when i first started seeing him back in the med 1970tys on my first visit he said to me i know you but you may not remember me ... he said he delivered me ...when my 2nd daughter was ready to deliver Dr.Smith was headed out of town to a meeting. he canceled the meeting and came and delivered my daughter he said it was a family tradition to be there to deliver her ..that's just how dedicated Dr. Smith was to his practice and patients ..he will be...

Dr. Smith was my mother's and my doctor. He was so kind, comforting and understanding. I worked at Showalter Memorial Hospital and Montgomery County Hospital. Dr. Smith was always there to lending a helping hand. My brother died two years ago and Dr. Smith came to the funeral home to see me. He was just wonderful. God bless and keep all of you. He is in heaven and adding much joy and bliss there. I thank God for Dr. Smith. I will keep all of you in my prayers.

I worked at Montgomery Regional Hospital for many years - one of my fondest memories is of Dr. Smith and his dear Ruth sharing lunches with us in the hospital cafeteria - he always spoke and smiled - his smile and twinkling always put magic in my day! the best part was the dear care he took of his Ruth - especially when she was in poor health - such love for a very special man!

Dr Smith was such a wonderful Dr and friend! He delivered me and 3 of my siblings. He was my Dr most of my life and he was always there whenever I needed him. I also had the privilege to work for him for a couple of years.
He will be greatly missed!
God bless you Dr Smith.

Dr. Smith delivered both of my sons and was our family doctor until he retired. He was a wonderful, kind, gentle man.

Dr. Smith was our family doctor from 1968 until his retirement. He delivered our son Jeff and was his doctor also. He was a great blessing to our family and the community. Our son attended the University of Tennessee and he and Dr. Smith talked UT often. Thanks for sharing your beloved father with us for so many years. The Sluss Family.

My thoughts and prayers to the family... Dr. Smith was such a kind soul...I met him years ago through Lewis Gale Hospital Montgomery. He will be dearly missed. God Bless....

To the Smith Family,

Thank you for sharing you Father with our community for so many years. He was truly a wonderful person and excellent physician. He delivered 7 babies for my parents and my Mother was one of his biggest fans ever. He was so nice to her.

She was so impressed with him that she named me (her third child and first boy born 5/3/55) after him. The first two where girls, or I'm sure his name would have been used earlier!

With much love and...
