This memorial website was created to remember our dearest son Joseph Eldon Smith who was born in  Arkansas on March 14, 1983 and passed away on April 14, 2005. You will live forever in our memories and hearts.


When Joseph was born he weighed in at 11 lbs. even big boy. He was always shy when he was little. He did grow out of that. He was a joy to be around from the start. He has an Older sister (Nicki), an Older brother (Bryan), and a Younger brother (Nathan). He had a fiancee (Rhonda) whom he loved very much. And of course his Mom (Dessa Marie) his dad (Charles). and many family and friends.  


He was met by My Mom (Winnie) his Dad's Dad and Mom (Charlie and Pearle). Joseph greeted my Daddy (Curt) June 3, 2009. He has both sets of his grandparents with him now. I love you all so much and one day we will all be together. Until then I know you all are getting those famous Hugs from my precious baby boy.


Joseph I miss you so much!!!!!  





JOSEPH loved going to the car races
On sunday afternoons that is
where he loved to be.

JOSEPH worked in car detailing for
a few years. He also worked in
carpentry and roofed houses.

JOSEPH was the type of person
that loved to be on the go always.
When he was little we would always
tell him we should of named him

JOSEPH always reminded me of my
mother. He was only 5 years old
when his maw-maw went to heaven.
He didn't remember her well but
always wanted me to tell him about
her. He would always say I sure
wish I could of got to know her better.
Now he is. I know my mother is getting
all those hugs that I am missing.

Mama take care of my baby for me
I love you both and miss you so much.

JOSEPH was a hugger. He loved to
hug you. He never was embarrassed
about giving us "Mom & Dad"
a hug and kiss.
A few people would call him a mama's
boy. He would just smile and say
Yes I am.

When JOSEPH left he took a big part
of me with him.

JOSEPH you will never be forgotten
and you will always be LOVED.

We little knew that morning, that God

Was going to call your name

In life we loved you dearly,

In death we do the same.

It broke our hearts to lose you.

You did not go alone;

For part of us went with you,

The day God called you home.

You left us peaceful memories,

Your love is still our guide;

And though we cannot see you,

You are always at our side.

Our family chain is broken,

And nothing seems the same;

But as God calls us one by one,

The chain will link again.

Joseph loved cooking. He would fix our dinners

a couple of times a week. He would try

different things and it was always great. 



I miss you son beyond words you will never be forgotten you will

always be loved and always missed.







His Favorite color is Green

His favorite drink was Dr.Pepper and Mountain dew

He loved music



Joseph loved to party and have family get togethers

He was always the life of the party 





Joseph was never shy in telling his family that

he loved us it did not matter who was around

he would always tell us and if he was

not home he called. He would call 10 to

20 times a day. I can hear him now he would say

"Hey whacha doing where you at" even if he had just talked

to you 10 minutes before. His dad and I would laugh when

our phone would ring because we knew it was him

and we knew how it would start. We also knew how it would end.

"I'll talk to you later I love you"

I miss him so much my heart will ache forever.


But we never dreamed in a millions years

we would never talk to him again.

I can't have a cell phone anymore

I had it for about a year after I lost him

I was waiting on Joseph to call me. I

could not take it anymore.




The song playing  "Only He Can"

written by Mary Missildine and Heather Morris

with Heather Morris singing.

I want to thank them both for allowing me to use

their song on Joseph's site.

God Bless them both 







Joseph fell asleep on April 14, 2005 the worst day

of our lives. I tried so hard to wake him up

I don't know if I will ever get that image out

of my head. I begged him to open his eyes

I begged him to breath for me





Joseph 5 years now so far away but so close. Sometimes I think

it gets easier but then it all comes crashing down on me

The day I walked into your room and couldn't get you

to wake up. That haunts me over and over. If I only could of ??????

The what and if's will always be a part of my life.

But I do know one thing that will always be the same.


It's 7 years now I miss you today  as the day I lost you

wishing I could hold you again

see you again. Joseph we all love and miss you

so so much.

Its been 9 years now and I still miss you so much my life
is not the same and never will be until the day we are
reunited again in God's kingdom.
Joseph I hope you are smiling that precious smile
and happy now. I wish I could of made your life better.
If only I had of known how to make it better. Miss you so much.



10 Years

I am missing you so much. I don't know how to live without


13 years 

I love and miss you my son. 
forever in my heart
I believe one day we will be together again
