Jackie Lee Smith was a loving father, wonderful brother, a very special friend to Joan and an angel that God called home. In his own words, Jackie was person that wanted everyone to speak of him as you have always done. Remember the good times, laughter, and fun. Share the happy memories we've made. Do not let them wither or fade. I'll be with you in the summer's sun and when the winter's chill has come. I'll be the voice that whispers in the breeze. I'm peaceful now, so put your mind at ease. I've rested my eyes and gone to sleep, but memories we've shared are yours to keep. Sometimes our final days may be a test, but remember me when I was at my best. Although things may not be the same, just don't be afraid to use my name. Let your sorrow last for just a while. Comfort each other and try to smile. I've lived a life filled with joy and fun. Live on now, make me proud of what kind of angel you'll become.
From his loving family: If we only had five more minutes the day you passed away, we would have had time to tell you all the things we needed to say. We never got to tell you how much you mean to us or that you were the best friend and dad, better than any man could be. The last time we talked to you, we wish we would have known. We would have said we love you and kept you on the phone or at home. If we only had five minutes the morning you passed away, we'd give you one last hug so tight and see your great big smile. We'd tell you that we don't think we could live without you, not even for a while. We'd kiss your cheek and take your hand and tell you it's okay to go and tell you that we'll miss you more than you'll ever know. But you were gone so quickly. One last car ride you'd take. Before you even knew it, you were standing at heaven's gate. Now God has called upon you. It's time to get your wings to leave this life behind you and enjoy all of heaven's beautiful things. So wait for us in heaven, Jackie. Don't let us come alone. The day the angels come for me, please be there to bring us into our new heavenly home.
Jackie Lee Smith will be missed by a host of relatives and friends. Psalms 34:18
