Help Support Officer Smith's Family

$227,248 of $225,000 goal

Raised by 2,700 people in 28 months

UPDATE:   Thank you GoFundMe for generously donating $10,000 to the family of Mike Smith which will cover the 5% fees associated with the fund! The friends of Mike Smith appreciate your donation to help provide for this wonderful family!
____________________________________________________________

This GoFundMe page is being established in honor of Officer Smith, a veteran of the Dallas Police Department.  On July 7, 2016,  Officer Smith was shot by snipers while protecting the citizens of Dallas who were participating in a friendly protest on the streets of downtown Dallas.

Officer Smith leaves behind his wife of 17 years, and their two girls age 14 and 9.  This page is being established by friends of the family to help pay for funeral expenses as well as start a fund for whatever the family may need to get through the coming years. 

Please give to help protect this family as Officer Smith did for the City of Dallas.  Any amount is appreciated.  All of the Smith's family, friends and acquaintances are devastated and are trying to figure out how to help the family navigate through these times.  Please help us provide a cushion to the blow of losing their loved one.

On behalf of the Smith Family, they would like for me to send out this personal "Thank You" for the overwhelming response to this page. They are humbled by the show of prayers, love, support and encouragement that you have provided to their family. Nothing can ever replace the loss of Mike. They miss him terribly and are having difficulty dealing with his passing at this time. The only thing they can do at this point is have faith that God has walked them down this path for a greater reason. Please hug your loved ones tight and pray for a resolution to the epidemic of hate and violence that is present in our country today.

I remember officer Smith coming over to Cargo to check on the donuts. He would come in and I would put my hands in the air and offer to be arrested (to get some rest after my 3rd double). He'd always say all the beds were full over there. Such a kind face and such a kind man. He will definitely be missed. A great officer and a true gentleman.

Your husband and father, Mike, was an officer who protected those of us who served the body of Christ. He was diligent, kind, wise, and always shared a smile, a kind friendly greeting and one of the best people I have ever come across. I am so sorry for the loss your family has suffered. I am sorry that we will not see him again until we too are in the presence of our heavenly Father. May God give you a peace and a comfort that surpasses all understanding.

I would hope the family doesn't have to use any of this money for funeral expenses. The City of Dallas should as he was killed on duty.

My thoughts and prayers are with you Mrs. Smith and your two daughters. I met Officer Smith about a year and half ago when he was providing security at a Law Firm I worked at. He always had a smile on his face and He was so kind to help if we asked. I am heart broken for your family. May God wrap his arms around you and your girls and give you comfort and guidance in your time of need. God Bless you.

So sorry I missed this until now. I saw a pic of Mike and realized I knew him when he worked at the Handlebar in Beaumont. He was a good man.
