Dear Colleen and Family,
We are so sorry for each of you in your loss. Our special thanks go to Colleen and Smith for the many hours given to our daughter Christine Beaver when she needed comfort and direction, and family just wasn't enough. May you feel free to call on us if we can help you. Love, Don and Carol

Colleen and Family,
As Colleen's friend, I had the privilege of knowing Dr. Smith the past few years. In his quiet, dignified way, he was respected even outside his work, as a neurosurgeon. His work as a neurosurgeon for me and thousands of others was brilliant.
I would like to acknowledge his Children, William, Suzanne and Paul for all their love and support of their Dad and Colleen.
What I want to share is his and Colleen's special love for each other. When she came to the office, he lit up. Colleen was most happy having time with him. And the banter between them was hilarious. This last year, Colleen was an amazing, tireless caregiver. They each were more concerned about each other than themselves. That kind of love will last forever.
With love Smith, from your rose buddy.

Rest in peace Bud, you had a long successful life and career. We met in 1943 at Eugenes Barbershop in Tulsa..
Grace had taken you there for a haircut and we found out that we lived in the same neighborhood.
During those early years you were away to Lawrenceville in prep school and we only spent summers and vacations together with Walter Jordan and Bob Armstrong. We did a'lot of squerril hunting and swimming at Hudson's pool.
In 1946 your dad WO and mother Grace moved the family from 38th street to 26th street and wanted to send some household furnishings to the farm in Marshall, Mo. I was 17 years old and Doc Smith ask if I would drive the load of furniture to the farm in a rental truck. I jumped at the chance and you went with me. We had a ball!
This is just one of the many great times we had together. These are boyhood memories you don,t forget.
Sadly your gone, but will never be forgotten.
My love to Colleen and your family.

Sad to hear of the passing of Dr. Smith. My husband had been a patient of his since 1996. So thankful for what he has done for him. Even when Doc stopped practicing he would see Dave as needed. There are not many like that for sure. I still catch myself looking over at the office when I drive down Middle Urbana to see if he is putting in late night hours. I know he knew how much we respected and appreciated him for what he did for us. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife and family. May he enjoy a good tennis match. The Toadvine’s
