The statement from Smith's family thanks the Independence community, people from across America, the state patrol, and other law officers for helping them through the difficult time. It says "Your support was, and still is, incredible as we navigate through life without our Superhero. Jim wanted people to seek opportunities to do God’s work and to make a lasting impact for God’s glory.
