So sorry for your loss. Charles will be truly miss by many, including those of us with Texas Plains Trails. His work on the Quanah Parker Arrows will be a reminder and tribute to him all over our part of the state including my town of Paducah. His smiling face and friendliness to those of us he had just met will be remembered. You are in my prayers as you are going through this time of loss. May God wrap you in his arms and comfort you.

Tracy, Scott and Chuck how saddened I was to hear about Charles. I have fond memories of Charles when we served on the schoolboard and when you guys were in school. I pray that God gives you peace and that each one of you and your children have good memories of a great man.

I was so very glad to have been associated with Charles and his great talent during the Quanah Parker Trail initiation by the Texas Plains Trail Region. His beautiful arrows cover our 52 county region. Condolences to the Smith family and to Jane.

Dear Family of Charles Smith: I was so saddened to learn of Charles's passing. I live in Matador, and I was Arrow No. 1 on the QPT. Charles was a great friend and a great man - we loved him dearly.

Charles Smith became such a good friend while working on the Quanah Parker Trail. His contributions to the project which documented the history and geography of the Comanche presence in West Texas was both inspiring, monumental and essential. For the first time the history of the Comanche and the connection of Quanah Parker to legacy of Texas was documented. Charles' sculpture, the 24-foot long steel arrows, painted in Comanche colors, and planted in the ground in 87 locations in 51 Texas panhandle and south plains counties, was part of one of the largest public history projects in America. Through his charitable goodwill he inspired hundreds, if not thousands, with a renewed love of Texas history and infused them with the understanding of a Comanche people who still considers Texas their homeland. When I heard the arrow fletchings sing as the West Texas wind blows through them, I can see Charles' incomparable smile.
