Johnnie Brewer left a message on December 1, 2020:
Pastor Ken Smith asked the question one night after a gospel concert, if you died tonight, do you know for sure that you would go to heaven? At the age of 15, I did not know the answer to that question, but on May 2, 1973, I got saved. i am forever grateful that he asked that question. He was always gracious and kind to my family. When my father would be in the hospital, he would often visit with him and pray for him. Praying for the Smith family.

To Pastor Ken Smith's Family, My Wife was Janet Shifflett and was one of the 'Bus Kids" way back. I lost Janet also on May 10, 2013 but God allowed me to spend 30 Great Years with her by my side! Pastor Smith came over to our Wedding in 1985 and helped with that! He was such a Blessing to Janet and me when we were getting started together! Thank You and may God help to Comfort you all in this time of Loss. I Know Janet was waiting at the Gate when Pastor Ken arrived, with many others, standing behind Jesus to greet him in Heaven!

The first Smith I knew was KH. He was the little guy on the school bus with me I loved and looked after and Christy would have sleepovers with my sister. Preacher asked me to come sing one Sunday when I was 13 and shortly after that he was my preacher too. On Sunday he would come down to my Jr church class and say " Heard those kids singing this morning" and grin so big. Preacher and Boo Lou loved the children with such heart. From 1975 to 1999 we worked together bringing thousands of them to Jesus. When he'd come down and talk 90% of the time we had taught the same message that morning-we thought that was God. He married me, baptized me and all 5 of my sons and prayed the salvation prayer with my Dad. I got to 2nd the motion on Buelahland named after Boo Lou's sweet mama-like mother, like daughter. My Dad and son Matthew were up on the walls when we set the roof while I kept the job site clean and played gopher. Those men were priceless. Building churches and keeping buses running so we could get all those kids to church to know Jesus. Great will be their reward in heaven. Thank you Preacher and Bonnie Lou and Christy and KH for giving up this world for souls each in your own way. I love you and ask God to wrap you in his love and mercy.

Timothy Schraff left a message on December 1, 2020:
Pastor Ken Smith was a servant of God that God used greatly to start Rosedale Baptist Church which eventually was named Lighthouse Baptist Church. Pastor Smith had a heart to see souls come to know Christ and spend eternity in heaven through the saving mercy of Jesus Christ. My family and I were greatly influenced by Pastor Smith’s ministry and a major part of our life has been spent at Rosedale / Lighthouse Baptist Church and Rosedale/ Lighthouse Baptist Academy. Thank you Pastor Ken Smith for allowing God to work through you and may God give us more Ken Smiths in this country. May God bless and comfort Bonnie Lou and the Smith family during this time.

Monica Thompson left a message on November 30, 2020:
My first memory of "Preacher" was when I was outside on the Rosedale car lot. I was picking up my kids from daycare (1977) and my car wouldn't start. Preacher noticed what was happening and simply held up his keys and said I could take his car home. That was so unusual and after a few time saying "Are you sure?" I finally took him up on the offer. The next morning, my car was ready to go. He had Mr. Mason fix it for me. This was the start of my Christian walk. Now, Preacher & Mr. Mason are rejoicing along with many others who are waiting for us! Love & prayers for a calm and steady transition for family and friends. I love you all very much! <3

Dr. Amanda Sherman left a message on November 29, 2020:
On the day I was born, Uncle Ken gave me a small pink bible with a note written inside. In part it said, “if you ever need a buddy to tell your troubles to, I’m willing to listen. When you’re old enough to trust Jesus as your savior, be sure and do so.” It was signed Uncle Ken, PS 119:18. (Open my eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of your law.) That bible has always been special to me. It was with me when Uncle Ken performed my wedding ceremony some thirty years after marrying my parents. I will continue to treasure that little pink bible along with his memory. Uncle Ken always had a hug and an uplifting word for us. He will be missed, but I am so glad to know that he is still watching over us from heaven.
