My son, Quinn, was a teammate of Spencer's last year on the Chargers flag football team. What fun it was cheering them on with you. My heart just dropped when I heard the news and I couldn't be more sorry for your loss. May God bless you in your time of need.

I am writing this on behalf of my step-daughter, Brittany. She was so sorry to hear about Spencer. She did not know Spencer very well, but she did hear stories from myself, her step-mom, and her dad about Spencer's latest escapades and adventures. She also was so appreciative and thankful for the Xmas presents that she got from Spencer......

Once again, she, as well as her immediate family, sent their condolences to myself and Tom via phone messages and a card. I just wanted to relay - via this website - that she is so sorry and is very upset to hear this devastating and sad news.

Her thoughts and prayers are with the Squire family at this time.

Words can not express our deepest sadness for you and your family. When i heard the news my heart stopped - its a feeling that only a parent can feel. He was a child so full of life and love you can see from the many many wonderful photo's - i am just sad that I never had the chance to meet him in person. He has definalty made a mark in many hearts so dear to your family that you have to feel good knowing that he will NEVER be forgotten but only thought about daily - that smile and those eyes will light up many to come for sure.

We will hold you all close to our hearts and keep you in our prayers during this time - just know that he is looking down now and smiling know you all gave him the best life anyone can ever have - full of love , laughter and of course the AGGIE SPIRIT - GIG EM!!!

We love you lots

Dear Anna and Patrick:
The Squires in Kentucky continue to pray for the Squire and Kirksey families in Texas.....
We wanted to share with you that on Sunday we attended Mass for Spencer at the Cathedral of the Assumption. The special prayer intentions for this Mass were for Spencer. After the gifts of Bread and Wine were brought to the altar, Father Bill (he had also presided at Alexandra's First Communion) prayed for those who have gone before us, especially for Spencer Squire. To hear the name of our dear little boy reach the rafters of the Cathedral brought us such peace and comfort. We wish that same peace and comfort be yours with each passing day.
We have chosen a star for Spencer among the hundreds of stars in the ceiling of the Cathedral. Each time we are there, we will look up at that star and think about our angel who has gone before us. Surely Spencer will lead the way.
With much love until we see each other again,
Jon, Linda, Johnny, Victoria and Alexandra

I'm so sorry for your loss. He was such a beautiful young boy. It's strange.... I got on looking for my friend's obituary and instead stumbled upon Spencer's. It broke my heart. It reduced me to tears. How could such a young, healthy looking boy go? I'm so sorry. I know they say that time heals all, but you have to have the will to keep going. Spencer would have wanted you too. And just remember that one day, you will be reunited with Spencer. There is always hope. You will see him again.
My heart goes out to all of you.

I never read the newspaper thrown in our yard but yesterday, I read it and saw the name Spencer as it is the name of our son. As I read further, to my husband, we wondered what could've happened to such a young and active child, so here I am.
Our hearts go out to you as you try to make sense of your loss. I cannot fathom the grief you feel. I am comforted to see the vacation bible school photos, knowing Spencer and you had hearts for the Lord. Even so, it may be hard to find comfort and answers to the question as why He would allow this.
What a beautiful boy and family.
One other message says that he was able to enjoy so much and yes, he did!
You will have no regrets.
Again, we are so sorry. The day will come again when you will all be together in glory.
Our prayers go out to you and his brother.

To Anna, Pat and Ryan,

Words cannot express how sorry I am for your great loss. What I will say is that after he passed away, and your families and whole communities united together to celebrate his life, it was one of the most inspirational messages of hope that I have ever encountered in my life. Spencer brought so much joy to so many people. Although I was away in the military for a half of Spencer's life, pictures of his beautiful face on my desk that you sent me while I was overseas and stories that I heard about him brought a smile to my face everyday. Even after I came home and got a civilian job, not a day would go by that I wouldn't stop whatever I was doing to take a look at pictures of Spencer and Ryan that I always keep with me. I still do this. There are still reminders that I have of Spencer everyday when I walk past the Boston Public Garden and look at the Swan Boats, and when I look up at the room at the Four Seasons where Spencer was playing soccer, as well as the Maggiore's Italian restaurant where Spencer was happily eating fried squid, thinking it was french fries. I think that Spencer will always bring happiness to people's lives, I know that he still does to mine.

In looking at the pictures and memories you have shared, it is easy to see the joy that Spencer brought to all those in his life. May your memories of him keep him close to you always.

You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.

I did not have the pleasure of meeting Spencer but after reading all the things he did and experienced in his short life, I know that he was a very special and very loved little boy. I knew Spencer's mom in high school and wanted to let Anna know that she and her family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Squire Family,
I have never met any of you, but I am one of Mrs. Dailey's past students. I cheer at Navasota High School and I remember when Mrs. Dailey would bring Spencer down to the field during football games. He always made all of us cheerleaders smile. I am sorry to hear of his loss and although I know I can't do much I will continue to pray for the healing and strength of you all.
Much Love,

To Pat and Anna, we can't put into words our feelings for how much we care and love your family, and prayers are being said for you, especially during this time.. You and your family have always been there for the Colon's, and now more than ever we want to be here for you and your family...

Dear Patrick, Anna, and Ryan,

I was very sad to hear of your great loss. Spencer was a special boy, full of life and energy. I always remember how he wanted to bring me a frosty or milkshake when he came to visit. He was a loving boy filled with a generous spirit, and he always had a smile on his face. I also remember the A&M symbols he liked to draw. I am going to miss him. I pray God's gentle and loving Spirit surrounds and comforts you. May He bring healing to your hearts.

To: Patrick and Anna, From: Dave, Pam, Michael and Matthew Mercadante. Most importantly we would like to express our heartfelt sympathy for the loss of your beautiful son Spencer. Nothing in life is more precious to us than our children and to lose a child--no words can really heal that pain. Know in your hearts that your little boy will never really leave your side. He is with you always through your journey in life. The lord will keep him safe until you see him again when it is time. Be absolutely sure that in everyway that he has touched your lives up to this day that he will continue doing so in many mysterious and unforseen ways. You have never met me, I am Dave,s wife Pam. He told me what wonderful people the two of you are. When he visited for the Dallas Cowboys game with Chris he was fortunate enough to spend time with you and your children. He couldn't say enough about how hospitable you were to him while he stayed. I want your to know about me because I want to share with you a little bit about myself. I lost a brother when I was 15 years old. He was killed in a car accident at the age of 18. This loss was devastating to our entire family, but most of the devastation was felt by my parents. I was just a kid myself but I remember the way my parents faught to get through this time for the bennefit of their other 3 children. They held on to the rest of us and continued to go on with their lives the best way that they could. Anna, If I could share some advice with you and your husband from my personal experience, it would be to never forget the power of our Lord Jesus Christ and his mending ways. Your son will absolutely be watching you through out your lives and you will want to continue to teach him as if he were right there by your side each day. There are times when I know that my brother Jerry is by my side because a song that we used to listen to together will start to play on the radio. I definately feel his presence and somehow I know what he is saying to me. It is very powerful. This also happens when our family gets together for what ever the occassion. The song always comes on the radio as soon as everyone has arrived. He is telling us that he is here the party can begin. Never stop sharing stories of Spencer with your loved ones as this helps to keep him alive and present in your lives. We will all be praying for your strength to return to you and for your love for life to continue on. With our love and prayers, The Mercadante Family.

Dear K.K., Patrick & Ryan,

Even after getting back to a relativley normal life in Georgia, I still have trouble wrapping my mind around the events of the last 10 days. To me, It is just still so surreal and wrong. But, what I have learned from precious Spencer's all too short life is a lesson I intend to apply in my everyday life. To try and live life to the fullest and to remember how precious our time in this life is. I think Spencer knew that from day one. He certainly lived his life that way. I was so touched to hear so many wonderful memories re-lived by some that knew him best at the funeral service. Spencer experienced and achieved so much in his life that it is hard to believe he was just a child. Every parent should be so lucky to have a child like him, and every child should be so lucky to have the family and friends that surrounded him so lovingly till the end.

We will miss you Spencer and you will forever be the Delta group's first grandchild and our little angel in heaven.

Mari-Margaret, Chris, Ally and Maddie

I just returned from a week long stay in Texas. A week
unmatched in my lifetime by the strongest showing of
faith that I have ever been witness to. It starts of course with Pat and Anna, their parents and their family's on down through their many friends as well as neighbors.
Many of us are told that you can tell a lot about a person
by whom he or she surrounds themselves with. Well, Pat and Anna, you guys wrote the book!
My time with Spencer, like his life was brief, yet quality.
Sure, there was the Make Way for Duckling's book that
I gave to him as a newborn. Anna, I am so glad that you were able to experience the Swan Boats with Spencer
up in Boston's Public Garden. That meant a lot to me.
And, then there was the Coco Crisp Red Sox jersey on yet another Boston trip. Spencer must have thanked me a million times, all unprovoked and each one sincere.
But, there is undoubtedly one moment I had with the Squire family on a trip to Dallas I made this past February that I would like to share. One morning we all set off to the Plano Rec.Center for one of Spencer's
basketball games. As we were enroute, I gave Spencer a little pep-talk, asking him that if he were to score a
basket, to give me the "thumbs up" sign. The ball was no sooner tipped when Spencer took a few dribbles upcourt and unleashed about a 15 footer. As the ball swished through the net, Spencer had already started to turn to find me so as to give me the "thumbs up" sign. I
will never forget his beautiful smile as he did all this. It
was as if he patented the "thumbs up" sign all by himself, the way he did it.
It doesn't end there though, as Anna and I cheered from
the stands I caught his Dad's eye, the scorekeeper at
mid-court. He gave me, (as only he can) his own head nod and eyebrow raise as if to say ya that's my son, get
used to it Dorse it's a long game.
Pat, as you and Anna were there for me in my time of need, not so long ago. I want you both to know that I am here in yours. Although we all wish Spencer's game was still continuing, I know and truly believe he is in a better place.
As little Ryan summed up the week so beautifully, you're
gonna make it! Pat and Anna, you have us all, but more importantly you have eachother. And even more import- ant than that, you have your faith. May God bless
you during this difficult time.

Dear Pat, Anna and Ryan,
This past week has been almost unbearable for me but because of your example of courage and faith, I will always be able to draw upon your strength when things in my life are difficult. I have been thinking about how the reciprocal love of our families and your friends, your faith in God, Texas and Texas A&M has provided for you and all of us a conduit for the grief of losing such a fine son, nephew and friend; a conduit that for me has led to some comfort in knowing that Spence is all right now. As Spencerís uncle I had hoped to do a lot of boating & camping in New England, as well as going to many more Red Sox, Patriot and Aggie games with him but like everyone else we always thought we would have the time. We will definitely do those things with you and Ryan whenever we can. I love you all and you are in my thoughts everyday--as always.

Kirksey and Squire Families,
It is so hard to find the right words when such a tragedy occurs. My heart is broken for you. When we lost our baby 14 months ago, I will never forget what a dear friend said to me: "Jesus' arms are around you and so are mine." I want to say that to you now. That simple statement has truly comforted me many times since then, and I hope that it also comforts you in the days, weeks, and years ahead. Please know that we are praying for you to find the strength to live fully again--the way your little Spencer so obviously did.
Very sincerely,

My Mother and Spencer's Grandmother are second cousins, so I've heard a lot about the Squire family. Being the Christian family that you are I'm sure you will overcome this devastating tragedy.

My thoughts and prayers are with your family.
