My deepest sympathies to your family for your loss. Alden was my instructor at WWU and had a positive impact on my world. He challenged me on my academics and was kind to me personally. I value the knowledge and lessons he taught me and use them virtually everyday. I was lucky to have been one of his students, graduating in 1989.

You remain in my thoughts Alden.

Dr. Smith was one of my professors in Communication at WWU. His course was excellent, he encouraged me to pursue further study and he became a friend, too. His kindness and encouragement has led me to graduate work in Communication and Speech Language Pathology. I am so sorry for your loss, he is a gem.

My deepest sympathies to the family of Alden Smith. Unfortunately, I did not meet Alden but I work with his daughter, Kirsten. From knowing Kirsten, I know Alden was a fine man - living a life committed to his family, loving others and sharing his knowledge in every opportunity. Many prayers to the family during this difficult time.

I have thought of Alden over the many years since I graduated from WWU with my Broadcast Communication degree in 1975. If there is anyone who I considered a mentor in my life, it is Dr. Alden Smith. He gave so much to the WWU Broadcast Communication program, cared for others, and found the good in all of us.

I had been trying to reach Alden through WWU over recent years and was finally able to get a message along with one of my "Explorative Communications" newsletters to him via WWU and Eunice. This happened within about a week before he passed away and I find this truly quite miraculous.

I would love to have visited Alden at beautiful Lake Watcom near Bellingham and if I travel there again, I will dedicate my trip to him. I am so grateful for knowing Alden and my heartfelt thoughts, support, and prayers go to Alden, all of his family, and everyone who loved him. Thank you Alden for being the intelligent, witty, and magnetic human being you have been to us.

(Although I don't see an e-mail contact option, I welcome contacts from family/friends).

You have my sincere sympathies at the loss of Alden. He was my advisor and teacher at Western Washington University in the 1980's, and I always think of him with fondness and good humor. He was a credit to the program and community.

I would like to offer my sincere condolences to Eunice and the entire Smith family for their loss. I've known all going as a colleague at Western Washington University and later as a neighbor. Alden was the chief architect of the radio TV broadcast program that he developed while at Western. If students benefited greatly from his tutelage and he was well respected by them.

Alden was a strong supporter of the environment and especially Lake Whatcom. I still look next door expecting to see Alden serving his domain.
