Kearstin Kennady Smith, on July 14, 2020, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ called our beautiful Kearsty home to Him at the young age of 18. She left behind her loving family: her parents, Jaime and Tim Smith, her four sisters, Riley, 16, Gracie, 14, Daisy, 12, and Mercy, 10 of Columbia, TN, her MomMom Linda Lynch of Mount Laurel, NJ, Grammie Charlotte Brown of Paris, TX, as well as aunts, uncles, cousins, friends and her 2 lovable puppies.
From the time Kearsty could walk, she was singing and dancing to all kinds of music. She continued to love all things Disney and Pixar. In later years, she found K-Pop and her personal favorite group was BTS who undoubtedly, strongly influenced and elevated the level of her creativity and talent in video editing.
While Kearst excelled in her high school French Honors Program, it was the Korean culture and language that became a special passion to her. So much so, that she taught herself to read, write and speak Korean. An amazing accomplishment to say the least. June 2020, Kearsty managed to gracefully graduate high school and celebrate her 18th birthday through the Covid 19 Pandemic quarantine (a most unusual period in the history of our country and world). She was preparing to continue her education at Community College in the fall.
Much of Kearsty's free time was spent practicing her craft: video editing. She was so gifted, and it served as a fulfilling and joyful hobby. She would get the family to participate in some of her homemade video edits and we are so blessed to have those memories to continue to cherish.
Kearst was so Intelligent and talented. She was a fantastic artist but, had yet to really delve into that side of those talents. Her entire family held a special place in her heart. Her parents were her anchor and her life line. Her sisters were her partners in fun and "funny stuff." She really loved her little cousins. She truly appreciated the people who loved and enriched her life such as, her grand-moms, aunts, uncles, and friends. And finally, she fiercely loved and protected her puppies Gidget and Molly. It was known by all to be reciprocated, most especially by Gidgi. Gidgi was there with Kearsty before Kearst headed home to live with our Lord. We trust they were loving and comforting each other in those last hours because Kearsty was Gidgi's "person."
We have only scratched the surface of who Kearsty's precious soul was to us. But, we honor the life of our Kearst. She was so much more than our words could ever capture. And no amount of words could ever convey the depth of our love for her. We take comfort in knowing that now; she is being realized in her fullness by the One who created her, the One who gifted her to us for 18 years, the One true living God, our savior Jesus Christ! She is not just at peace she is dwelling in the arms of His everlasting perfect love! Perfect Love without measure, without limits! Thank you Father! We praise your holy name and give you all the glory!
We will Never forget you Kearst! You will be deeply missed by so many and leave a void in our hearts for all time. We will miss you until we see you again in heaven. Kearst, you will remain forever our remarkable, wonderfully made, extraordinary treasure! "You" Were Loved! And we will continue to love You through eternity!
