|Please accept my deepest sympathy in the loss of your father. How ironic that he was in a hospital room next to mother and we lose them less than 24 hours apart. I know that words nor deeds help at a time like this but the great memories we have of our parents always being there for us and supporting us helps. Time helps to ease the pain. We can take comfort in knowing they are with the Lord and not suffering the physical pains. God bless you and yours.

|Mr. Smith was a great man and loved so much by his family and community. I know your hearts will be heavy during the Holiday Season, but try to remeber how truly blessed you were to have him. That is what will help us through the season. We lost Mom on Dec 3rd.
God Bless You,

|A Man that always looked you straight in the eye. A Man that loved God and was proud of it. A Man that gave a firm handshake and made you feel important when he talked with you. A man that worked hard for his family and
and accomplished many things in his life. That's Uncle Carlton.
Although I did not have the opportunity to spend much time with Uncle Carlton the few times that I did were memorable.
I am confident that Uncle Carlton is comfortable in his new "Home" and it will be a treat to see him again.
I send my love and rejoice with the family knowing full well that Uncle Carlton is where I will be able to spend as much time as I want with him when I arrive.
If life here is a journey then I believe that Uncle Carlton had a good one.
God Bless the family and all that had the priviledge of knowing this great man...one of a kind.

|My deepest condolences to the family of R. C. Smith. I am so sorry for your loss.
My deceased husband worked for Mike and Gene Smith and they showed us the utmost
kindnesses during our time of need. My husband thought a lot of this whole family and
spoke well of all. In my opinion, he was a good judge of character.
Having a loss is never easy and my prayers are with each an every member of this
family. Its hard to know what to say. I know from experience that words don't make the
pain go away..but knowing that others care and are praying for you and yours is a
God bless you all.

|I HAVE KNOWN MR. R.C. SINCE 1958. I ALWAYS THOUGHT OF HIM AS A GIANT IN LIFE. HE ALWAYS HAD A SMILE THAT WAS AS WIDE AS THE MISSISSIPPI. I HAVE NEVER SEEN HIM MAD OR UPSET AT ANYTHING OR ANYONE, AND I HAVE BEEN AROUND HIM BY STAYING AT HIS HOME WITH HIS SONS. ALWAYS A COMPASSIONATE MAN TOWARD EVERYONE. I ALWAYS HAD A CONVERSATION WITH MR. R. C. AT THE POST OFFICE IN CONROE AND HE WOULD TELL ME ABOUT THE HISTORY OF THE CONROE AREA AND HOW HE WOULD WORK AT GETTING HIS PLUMBING BUSINESS STARTED. THIS MAN WILL BE SORELY MISSED AS I HAVE MISSED SEEING HIM AT THE POST OFFICE SINCE AUGUST. MAY HE REST IN PEACE AS I KNOW THAT HE IS IN THE CARE OF JESUS CHRIST.

|Dear Family and Friends,
Saying my Pappaw was a great man is an under statement. He was a man that worked hard all his life for his family. He was hard at times on all of us but we all knew in the end that he loved us and that what he told us was for our own good and well being. I remember growing up at his home and playing with my cousins at our Pappaws house. Brad, Marc and I used to slide around on out stomaches on their wood floors Pappaw and Mammaw used to tell me. I remember spending the night at their house with Brad, and Pappaw waking us to go feed the chickens, and Mammaw geting onto him to let us both sleep in. Another time I remember counting drawers and drawers of coins and Pappaw bought Mammaw a car with just change! Saying this Pappaw was a great business man that treated people in all his dealing with respect. My Grandfather taught me a lot but the most important things are to love the Lord Jesus Christ, always do what is right, and to have perserance and to always work hard. When I started recently with Legend Homes and working in Walden on Lake Conroe I was so gald to be able to visit and talk with Pappaw for two weeks in August of this year. He spoke of how he started with nothing and with God help he build what has become a great company that my Dad and Uncles have built into a very successful business. I am proud to be a Smith because of my Grandfather because I know where and who I am from. I miss Pappaw very much, and I love him. I know he is now with my brother talking about the rest of us. Reagan and Pappaw are working in Heaven together fixing the plumbing I am sure. I love them both and I think sometimes how wonderful it will be to see them again. I love all my Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins and want us to all become closer because I know that is what Pappaw wants for all of us because we are all a piece of him and he a piece of us in both a physical way and definately in an emotional way. Pappaw helped Cheryl and I get on our feet when we were first newly wed, and I can remember living in apartments he built as all of us have at one time or antoher from about age 2 to age 27. This is just another example of who intelligent and long range planning Pappaw did for his family. I love and miss him so much. My only regret was that I did not spend more time with him growing up, and knowing him more on an emotional level. I wish I would have tried harder to get under that tough outer shell because I know Pappaw's heart- it is as good as gold- and though he never showed it much to me he did have a soft spot but was just to proud to show it much- because men of his generation, as my uncle said, " one of the last of the great generation" that lived through the Great Depression, WWII, Korean War, Vietnam, had to all be tough and carry thier family and our nation upon their shoulders. I understood my Grandfather, and at time did not like him, but I have always loved him. I am proud to be RC SMITH's Grandson. Monday December 5th for me will be a sad day but one that I want to celebrate Pappaws life, and love my family.
I love you Pappaw!!
