Misty Dawn Smith

May 26, 1977August 1, 2012

Misty Dawn Smith, age 35, passed away peacefully while sleeping Wednesday, August 1, 2012 at her residence in Houston, Texas. She is so deeply loved and will be forever missed by her family and friends. Misty's beautiful smile and big laugh were unmistakable and infectious. You couldn't help but laugh along with her. She naturally focused on the good in others, and cared for people deeply, known by all for her generous and empathetic nature. She loved her vast and varied community of friends and acquaintances, embracing diversity, respecting other's religious beliefs, social background, race, and cultural uniqueness. Misty graduated from Westfield High School (Houston, TX) in 1995 and became a full-time parent. She was passionate about helping others and in 2009 went back to school accumulating credit in the health care field. In 2011, she graduated from The Texas School of Business as a Medical Assistant and pursued a career in pediatric health care. Misty's love for children was eclipsed only by her love for her family. Misty is survived by her beloved daughter Brianna Janae Smith; mother Terri Lynn DeMontrond and step-father Lea DeMontrond; father Roger Smith and step-mother Norma Smith; sister Evelyn Smith and husband; brother Thomas Heath Miller and wife Karen; as well as her grandmother Rose Marie Garlin. Additional surviving family members include her aunt Gloria Mifflin and husband Harry Mifflin; aunt Mary Jean Hibler and husband David Hibler; cousins Michael Mifflin and wife Kelly; Rebecca Schatte and husband Weston; Marshall Hibler and Marvin Hibler.

I can't believe it's been 5yrs. I miss u more and more as time goes by. Yet and still... ur always in my thoughts, dreams, and prayers. U just don't know how much I truly miss u. U were my soulmate regardless of anyone's thoughts. I have still not found any to love, the way I loved u. I doubt I ever will, since I turn 49 on Friday. I love u and miss u more than u know. I wish u were still here. I will see u again. Until then....keep it warm on my side of u while my footsteps follow. I love u Misty and always will...

Dearest Misty,

It's now just over 4 years. This has been the hardest year by far without your physical presence. I can still vividly smell your hair, feel your skin, see you eyes, hear your laugh, and feel you hugging me. I still can't believe we won't have the chance to do the thousands of things mothers and daughters do together as life goes on. We had many amazing experiences together and I am grateful - but greedy too as I wish there had been many more. The longing for your presence and the sadness that our time together here is over will never ease. Words could never describe the missing that keeps my heart aching. I love you sweet girl, and I"m grateful for the time we did have together - but this life will never, ever be whole again. Missing you...I LOVE YOU...Mom xoxox

It's a Sunday afternoon and the first sign of light of spirit in weeks. This year 8/1 was harder than last. And there are other sad things going on in the world that make the darkness deeper some moments. The missing, the grief comes and goes like waves - some gentle and some like a tsunami. The tsunami type generally need some cleanup and repair - some tending. I miss you and love you more than words could ever express. Hugs...Mom xox
