Dear Anna, Pat and Ryan,

This has been the most difficult time for Tom and I. Spencer meant the world to us. We were always so excited when you all were coming to Boston for a visit and we could not wait to visit with Spencer and Ryan.

We are so saddened by this devastating loss and I know words cannot accurately convey how heartbroken and sad Tom and I are for this huge void to our family.

Tom's fondest memories of Spencer are playing with him on numerous occassions - at the hotel in Boston, when Spencer yelled out 'hey, Uncle Tom, come sit over here and play playstation with me!' -- or in in the pool at The Balsams where Uncle Tom played with Spencer. Uncle Tom had so much fun with Spence laughing and playing. They both had so much fun together!

My fondest memories with Spencer were many, but imparticular, was on our trip to Carmel and San Francisco. Spencer came in my room some mornings jumping on me from the end of the bed into my arms where I hugged him tight and kissed his precious face each time he jumped. He laughed and laughed and his big blue eyes were filled with joy. Or when I tried to keep up with him in the hotel lobby -- wow, he was so quick!. He wore out his Auntie!.....These are such precious memories for myself and Tom and we will never forget the joy this darling boy brought to our lives.

I realize now that Spencer was put on this earth to make a difference. He had a huge impact on each person he met. He has so many friends and family that love him so much. He lived each day to the fullest with zest, compassion, enthusiasism, care, respect and love. His time on earth was short, too short, but he loved many and was loved by many during this time.

I know Spencer is looking down on us with his angel wings, and I also know that I will think of Spencer every day of my life. He was a remarkable little boy that his auntie and uncle loved very, very much. Love, Auntie D and Uncle T.

Having lost a child, we know the walk through the valley of death and we also know that God walks it with you. You can only do the first things once: the first Christmas, the first Birthday, and then the years begin to pile on. It is like when you are young and fell from your bike, the knee bled and it scarred. With time you see the scar, but it doesn’t openly bleed any more. It is such a sad walk, but please realize that you don’t take one step alone. Be kind to each other and remember that no two people grieve the same way. God loves you.

Dear Patrick, Anna and Ryan,

I have intended to write something on this website every day for the last several days but like so many others, I just cannot find the words. How can I provide any small amount of comfort to you at a time like this? There really is no answer- all I can do is let you know that I am here for you -ALL of you and share in the wonderful memories that my family and I hold of Spencer.

For the last several years, Spencer was Ben’s friend and teammate at soccer, baseball and basketball. What a team they made out on the soccer field! Ben has already said he will be making lots of goals for his friend Spencer. I’m smiling now thinking of a recent memory I have picking up the boys from basketball camp- Ben, Zack, Spencer and little Emma all in the backseat going to Sonic for a post workout treat. I can still hear Spencer now with his Dad’s Boston accent saying his favorite slush flavor was “charry”!

Although we have known the family for some time, it wasn’t until our families moved to the same neighborhood that not only did my son’s friendship with Spencer grow but my friendship with Anna blossomed over the many playdates at the park and girl talk in the carpool lane.

As this very long week has unfolded, I have seen a strength in both Anna and Patrick that anyone would be amazed by. In a time when most people including myself keep asking “Why? Why? Why?” both of you have kept your heads held high with tremendous faith in your hearts. Your overwhelming conviction has been a great inspiration to me and my family.

As a mother, I am in awe of your courage Anna. As a friend, I am in awe of your grace, generosity, strength and substance. This is what Spencer saw in his Mother and this is what he keeps with him as he looks down upon you from heaven.

Our hearts are with you Anna, Patrick and Ryan as they are with Spencer. He will always be a part of our family.

All our love,

Michele, Andy, Ben and Emma

Squire Family,
I recieved a prayer request from my Aunt in Texas this week praying for your son Spencer. I am so sorry to hear of your loss. In somewhat of a way I feel your pain. Six years ago I lost my 11month old nephew who was shaken. No words can describe the pain of loosing a child. All anyone can do is let time heal your pain and pray to your baby boy everyday. It helped heal our family to talk about all the memories daily. Keep Spencer so close to your heart and mind. I believe God has a big purpose and plan for Spencer and your family should be so proud. My family and friends will continue to think and pray for your family daily.

May God Hold Your Tissue & Catch Your Tears,

There are no words to describe how you feel now and for the rest of your life. I lost my son in an accident 6 years ago and it seems like yesterday. He is the first thing I think about when I get up and the last thing I think about when I go to bed. God has belssed me through my surrendering my son to his glorious will. I pray you find Gods sweet peace and strength to find your way through this most tremendous loss. Your Spencer sounds like her was an angel on earth. You are blessed to have had him. Stay close to God for he will send you a comforter and you will know it is the holy sprirt.. May you see signs and wonders especially for you. I will pray for your family. Also I think it is a wonderful thing that he donated his organs for that was a great act of love and kindness. I hope in some small way you will feel a part of him still lives within others. I am so sorry for your suffering. God bless you all.

While Spencer was with us he was so caring and loving and i know he lived his life with pure happiness. Spencer is in a very good place right now and I know we will all see him in heaven. I know the family is very strong. Hopefully see you all and cousin Ryan soon.

You always had room for one more on your team! What a team player! You are on God's team now--cheering us on. I will miss you! Thank you Anna, for bringing Spencer by my room last year when you came to pick up Ryan--his visits always made my day! All my love and prayers.

To our dearest little boy, we wrote this poem especially for you and know you will be our guiding star:

His life was like a shooting star,
A brilliant gleam
So swift, then gone
Leaving us in darkness

His heart was like a shining sun
A glowing warmth
So steady, so strong
Wrapping us in love

His memory will be a healing balm
An outstretched hand
We'll hold so tight
Leading us to peace.

Anna, Pat, & Ryan -

We are heartbroken about Spencer. Please know that you are in our thoughts and our prayers. I can tell you that Jenna loved Spencer. I remember the day she came home from kindergarten and told me she saw Spencer on the play ground. At first I thought she must have been confused because I didn’t yet know you had moved, but of course (as always) she was right, and so happy to have a friend from CDC with her at Boon even if they weren’t in the same class. She always had so much fun with Spencer at CDC. Whenever I was at Boon and would see Spencer, he always greeted me with his big blue eyes and his bright smile. He was an angel. Jenna will miss him as will all of his little friends. When I told her about Spencer, I told her no one knew it was going to happen and she smiled and said “God knew it was going to happen”. There is some peace in that thought. I also want you to know that Spencer is the new hero of my (almost 5 year old) son, Ethan. Ethan only knew Spencer through Jenna, but he does remember Spencer both from CDC and Boon. After the CUMC service, he wanted to hang Spencer’s name tribute and medal on the wall in his room next to his other sports stuff. Spencer will continue to remind us all to love life, to live lovingly, and to never to forget the importance of family. I am so sorry it is your painful loss that has reminded so many of us of this important life lesson.

Much love and sympathy -
Stacy, Jenna & Ethan Sturgeon

We love you all so much and while we are so saddened, we are also so greatful for having had the chance to know such an amazing young man. What joy he has brought to others and how much he has given. I purchased an Aggie ABC book today and am donating it in Spencer's name to my school library so that his love of Aggieland and the Aggie Spirit can be shared with the children at my school as well.

Dear Anna and Patrick,
As I am writing this, all of the Squires, the Kirkseys, many relatives and friends are gathering for Spencer's,
final service. Spencer's cousins, Jonathan, Victoria, Alexandra, and I are there with you in spirit and in love. Since I cannot be there, I have put my thoughts to words and have written my own tribute to Spencer. I pray that it may bring you, and perhaps others too, some small comfort.

The question is timeless. It is asked by both the young and the old alike. "What is my purpose here on the earth?" At sometime in our lives each on of us has questioned the reason for his own existence.

Reflecting on the life of Spencer Patton Squire, I think I know a little bit of why Spencer came to be among us. Spencer came to teach us how to love.

In his living and in his passing we have learned better the lessons of love. In his irresistible smile and in his boundless energy, we have seen a complete and utter zest for life. In his passing we have witnessed the power of love, the power to draw us closer, the power to give us strength. Thank you, dearest little Spencer, for sharing with us your gift of love.

This web site is such a wonderful tribute of love for Spencer. With all the pictures and letters it is evident the number of lives this precious boy touched. The hardest thing a parent can do is bury a child. Their age doesn't matter - young or old. The pain and grief from the loss is the same and sometimes unbearable. That is when your faith in God is so very important. HE WILL GIVE YOU STRENGTH AND COMFORT in the days ahead.

As I write this, I am overcome with tears. I am very sorry about the loss of your precious son. It's easy to say "I understand how you feel", but I really do. You see, I lost my son, Cris, in 1993. I had 35 years to love him. I still miss him, but I am so glad I had that much time with him. Spencer will always be in your heart and you will have your wonderful memories.

There aren't any words that will make it better right now. You must take the time to grieve. Eventually, it won't hurt quite as much.
