I am really saddened by the news about Dr Smith and his wife Judy. I have been a patient of his since I was 12 years old. They will truly be missed.

We loved both Judy and Doug and Pray for all their Family and Friends.
We are both devastated by this loss as both Friends and Community will suffer.

I am the brother of Judith Smith, she was a great sister, mother, daughter, and friend. She was always there when we needed her and she was the rock of our family. We will miss her dearly and hope that she will find her way to our mother who passed away on July 12, 2014. God bless you Judy!!!

I am the grandson of Judith smith, and their are just no words to describe what kind of people Doug and Judy smith were. They had humbleness, kindness, integrity and compassion for their jobs. There would be no way in the whole entire world you would not like these people. She was the best grandmother ever and so was Doug at being a grandfather. They loved each other so much that we always knew they would get taken together. I love my grandma and tall would have to
