We have just learned of Dr. Smith's passing and we are so very sad. We came to know Dr. Smith in Medford, Wisconnsin in August when he saw my husband at Aspirus Hospital. He then performed gall bladder surgery for Jack. We became more than a doctor/patient relationship over the many pre and post op surgery visits. He told us about his family who he loved very much, and that he was about to semi-retire to Tennessee. He was happily looking forward to this move. We last saw him on August 3 for Jack's last visit with him. We are certain the Lord sent him to us and he saved Jack's life, of that we are certain. We will remember him in our prayers along with his family. Eternal rest grant onto him Dear Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. Jack and Maryann Peterson, Medford.

Heidi, Hannah and Sam, I am having difficulty writing down what I want to say, that will express my feelings for you right now. I wish We lived closer, because I just want to give you all a Big Hug! (Sam, I know you use to hate that, but you would always give in when I begged). You have been in my thoughts and prayers over the years, and will forever remain there. Chris will be greatly missed by all who were fortunate enough to have known him. Love and miss you, Mary and Sandy

I didn't know Chris, but ever since Carter brought Hanna to our home I have learned to love her as one of my own. She is such a kind, intelligent, caring and lovely young lady. I'm sure she received those characteristics from mom and dad. I am so thankful that Chris and Heidi joined together and brought her into this world. I wish I had the chance to thank him in person. Jean and I will continue to pray for those who are grieving during this most difficult time. Please pause every day and think about the good times and keep Chris alive in your hearts. With deepest condolences, Steve Dlapa

It was a profound and deep sorrow that I experienced when I came to hear of the passing of my dear friend and surgical mentor, Dr Christopher T. Smith. He was instrumental in helping me get into the surgical program at the University of Tennessee and was the only resident who was there to congratulate me on match day. It was one of the happiest moments of my life and Chris was there to help me celebrate! I will miss his surgical acumen, his love of life, and his hilarious and irreverent sense of humor. There are countless memories from our training together and I feel that every time I step into the operating room for a case, Chris is right there with me. Chris , you may be gone physically but you live in our memories forever and will never be forgotten. Love to my big brother, may you Rest In Peace! And love to Heidi , Hannah, and Samuel and all your family in this time of grief. Sincerely, Shank Lakshman
