Dear Auntie Anna and Uncle Patrick,
Whenever I was around my cousin, Spencer, either in Boston during the summer, Lockhart for Thanksgiving, Plano for Ryan's baptism, The Balsam's in New Hampshire, Louisville for my First Communion, or chatting on the phone (Sometimes he could talk forever !), he always brightened my day and made me smile.

I am going to miss watching him grow up and my first Aggie game with him but I know he will be with us all in spirit.

As I am writing this now you are getting ready for the service in Lockhart and I wish I could be there to pay tribute to my cousin. I couldn't have asked for a better, loving cousin.

I have thought of you often through the years since high school wondering how and where you were. I see that you married a beautiful woman and have two incredibly wonderful children.

I have two children as well, Peter and Lauren, and when I heard about Spencer all I could do was hug them a little tighter and reflect on how precious life truly is.

It is obvious from all of the beautiful photos that Spencer is an incredible child with his Dad's spirit. You always had a way of making me smile in high school and I see Spencer has that same quality.

May God Bless you and your family in the days and years to come. May you find comfort in your memories of Spencer and know that his organ donation is such a wonderful gift that will always keep giving.

With heartfelt sincerity,
Diane Vitello

Pat, Anna, and Ryan,

I don't even know where to begin. I wish that I had the right words to comfort you in this horrible time.

Spence came into my life about 4 years ago, when Kasen (my 6 year old son) came home from the first day of pre-school and wouldn't stop talking about his new friend that he just met at school. After about a few weeks of non-stop talk about Spencer by Kasen, I told Kasen that I had to meet this kid that he held in such high regard. So, I picked Kasen up from Custer Road Church one day, where Kasen and Spencer were in Pre-School together, and I went inside inside to finally meet Spencer. And as you can imagine when I walked into Kasen and Spencer's classroom they were giving their teacher all she could handle (I know that surprises you). I just remember thinking to myself, that this probably won't be the last time that these two will be getting in trouble together. And, ofcourse it wasn't.

I just knew that we would be watching Kasen and Spence grow up and grow old together. Unfortunately that was not the case, but during Spence's short time with us, our families have shared so many special moments. The teams that Kasen and Spence played on together are already countless, but the memories that they have shared are priceless. We just could not wait for Kasen to finally start playing football in a league with Spence this Fall. Although, I think these two have been playing football together in their own leage since they met, regardless if they were in their classroom at school, inside both of our houses, or in both of our backyards. Spence won't be there on the field with Kasen this Fall , but he will always be in Kasen's heart and on his mind every step of the way, as well as mine, Jill's and Keegan's.

Spence was very special to us, just as your family is too. I am very thankful that I got to be apart of Spence's life and especially thankful that I got to spend his last few days with him on the Berkner football field, watching him do what he loved to do the most, which was playing and having fun with all of his friends. Spence was non-stop, care free, and just so full of happiness until the very end. We can all learn so many lessons from Spence and how he loved life.

Spence, you are an inspiration for all of us. How you battled,fought and never gave up until the very end is remarkable. That is why the Berkner Football Team is dedicating their 2007 Football Season to you. Every Berkner Ram football player will wear a black sticker with your initials on it on the back of their helmet in your honor. You will serve as a constant reminder to our players,caoches, and community to live and appreciate life to the fullest and to never give up.

Spence, although you lived in Allen and your dad would always take you to the Allen Eagle games, instead of the Berkner games. There was no way that I was going to stand for you to go to Allen HS and be an Eagle. I was going to do all that I could to make sure that you would go to Berkner and be a Ram with Kasen. Which ofcourse meant that you would be playing for me, and as much as I would have hated to have to put up with your Dad questioning me on a daily basis, it would have been a blast and well worth it. I just know that you are up in heaven right now with your Berkner Rams jersey on waiting for your partner in crime Kasen.

We love you Pat, Anna,and Ryan so much, and I wish you strength through all of this.

And Spence, we are so blessed that you came into our lives, we are better people because of you. We will never forget you. We love you!!!

Dear Patrick and Anna,
Our most sincere sympathy to all of you at this very, very sad time. Gary and I feel so blessed to have received the Christmas, Halloween and Easter pictures of Spencer and Ryan every year. Although we didn't get to see the boys as often as we would have liked, we were always so happy to hear from you and see how much they had grown. Of course, I did get to hear some wonderful "proud grandmother" stories from your Mom from time to time. We hope the precious memories you have of the joy Spencer brought to all your lives give you peace and comfort. Our love and friendship to all of you.

Dear Anna, Patrick and little Ryan -

Though my husband Matt and I never had the pleasure of meeting Spencer, I can tell by the photographs and numerous messages from family, friends and even strangers that he was a very, very special little boy. As I read some of these messages, tears are streaming down my face - it is amazing how many lives he touched in a powerful way. I am sad that we never actually knew Spencer, but through these messages I almost feel like I now do, and I am glad to know more about such a beautiful, remarkable child.

As I read about him being an Aggie fan, I recall some of the fun times my sister Tiffani and I had as young children at Aggie football games with our family, sitting close to the Kirkseys. I am happy to know Spencer got to have even more awesome Aggie game experiences.

Please know you and your entire family have been, and will continue to be, in our prayers.

I read about Spencer on Tex Ags and was so touched by the comments there and then on Spencer's website where I learned he is from Allen. From the pictures and and all of the stories, Spencer spread his Aggie Spirit for 6+ years on earth and it is continuing to spread here and he is now spreading his Aggie Spirit in heaven. May God comfort you as no other can. You are in our prayers.
Gig 'em and God Bless,

Mr. & Mrs. Patrick Squire:

We want to express our sincere condolences to you and your family
for the loss of your Son, Spencer.

We regret we never had the opportunity to meet Spencer, as I know
he was an outstanding ‘little man’.

We were born and raised in Bryan, Texas, so we are very proud of his
love for the ‘Aggies’.

God blessed my husband with a kidney transplant from an unknown donor
through Southwest Transplant Alliance at Scott & White Hospital in Temple in
September 2000., and seven years later, continues to be in good health. We thank
God everyday for the generosity of this family’s precious gift.

The loving and caring generosity of Spencer’s family in donating his organs
and tissue to the Southwest Transplant Alliance has and will continue to
help so many and as you said, Spencer’s sweet life will continue forever.

We ask God’s blessings upon each of you for your caring and most generous gift
that will benefit so many.

In Christ,

Jack and Shirley Kindt

Sometimes we just have to sit and wonder how this can happen to such a wonderful little boy who touched so many lives.
I have a young son and daughter who I Love with all my heart and after reading young Spencer's obituary I had to remind myself how precious life is. I will be praying for you during this hard time. I will even cry for you. (John 11:35 Jesus wept.) the shortest verse in the Bible. He wept when his friend Lazarus passed away. It shows that even the Lord has and can show emotions. (John 11:25 Jesus said unto her (Lazarus Mother) I am the resurrection , and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.
Trust in the Lord and you will see him again in his kingdom.
I did not have the plesasure of meeting this young boy here but I know I will walk with him in my Father's house.
I will send a donation to build the playground in his name. The Lord and my prayers are with you during this hard time...

Dana and I were saddened to hear the news about Spencer.I remember the time Pat, "Spensa" and I were hitting plastic golf balls in your backyard and how gifted an athlete he had become. While it feels like you didn't get the quantity of time you wanted with him, you sure got the quality.He was a testament of a beautiful union between two people and you should be proud. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Please let us know anything that we can do to help.

Its been years since St Catherine' s and time spent in Somerville. When thinking of you, I am instantly reminded what a sweet funloving person you were in 7th and 8th grade. Its obvious that you haven't changed and your beautiful boys possess those same special qualities.
I was so sorry to hear of your loss and wanted to send my deepest sympathies. It is difficult to find the right words, but I just wanted you to know I will keep you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Anna and family, I am Kristen Eliason Harris and was a Tri Delt with you many years ago at A&M (I am several years older than you). An email about Spencer was circulated to our class of deltas. Please know that you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. This especially hit home for me because I have two boys ages 3 and 5. Spencer is in a wonderful place and from what I have read, he is surely the captain of the sports team in Heaven. Gods peace to your family.

There are few moments that age and youth can really share together in complete harmony. I had the joy of sharing such a moment with you Spencer when we stood arm in arm singing the "War Hymn" at Coaches Night just a few short days ago. Sixty-five years did not matter - It's Great To Be An Aggie. That moment will live every time the "War Hymn" is played. Thank you Spencer for sharing that moment with me.

The loss of Spenser has got to be the greatest sorrow. His photos show a very happy, very loved little boy...full of life and eager to take on the world.
It's uncomprehendable to me how something like this can happen to such a sweet family.
May you find comfort today, courage for tomorrow and hope in your heart always. I'm sure he's watching over you right now with a soccer ball in one hand and a baseball bat in the other wearing his favorite Aggie t-shirt.
Much love and peace be with you,

I did not know Spencer personally; however, through his Aunt Margo I came to know a young boy that was full of life and was dearly loved by all. My sister died when I was six years old and my mother always said that was the worse thing that ever happened to her...that was is 1957...and to her that is still such a pain in her heart. But, somehow the world goes on. (My younger brother is a minister and at a recent family funeral that was the theme...that the world does go on.) We may not want it to..but the world does go on. Someone gave my mother a book by Dale Evans entitled Anger Unaware about her daughter who died young. My mother always said the book helped her so much to face the world again. I hope I can find that book for Anna and for Aunt Margo. I wish I had the gift for words...Margo is the eloquent one in our group...at a time like this. I can only say how my heart breaks for the family and my prayers to God will be to hold this family in His love and to give them the strength to face the world...as the world moves on.

We are truly heart-broken about little Spencer even though we never had the honor to have met him. My grand-daughter, Megan Elise and I were at the park near Kerr Elememtary School when we saw flashing lights.
As we were approaching we saw the Care Flight Helecopter preparing to land. My grand-daughter is only 4 yrs. old and wanted to know what was happening. I said someone is very sick and is being taken to the hospital in the helecopter and it could be a child. I told her we needed to pray immediately. We are Catholic and she and I said prayers to Jesus and Mary and asked them to please be with this sick person and to let him feel their loving presence.
We said many prayers as the Helecopter flew directly over our heads, and we noticed a Hugh Red Heart painted underneath the Helecopter. I pointed the Red Heart out to Megan and told her that they have great Love for the sick person and take very good Care of the sick as they take them to the hospital. It was surprising to see a 4 yr. old show such concern and compassion.
Megan and I said our prayers for him walking home.
After reading the obituary today for Spencer, I felt compelled to write in his guest book. I looked at all the photos of him and was overwhelmed to see this beautiful little boy whom we had never met but had prayed so earnestly and deeply for. I also showed his picture to Megan and said this is the little person we prayed for that was in the helecopter.
Although Spencer was only 6,he lived such a full, rewarding, honorable life with so many achievements, awards and recognition and so many exciting adventures that the majority of people never experience in a very long lifetime.
I know that Jesus welcomed this prescious little boy home with open arms and holds him so very close to his side and most Sacred Heart. Spencer is an angel and we will see him in him again in heaven!
With all Sincerety of Heart and Compassion and Praying for all Spencer's family to feel Grace and Peace in God's Blessings, I want you to know your are in my thoughts and prayers.
With much Love for a little boy we never met,
Jeanette and Megan Elise

Dearest Squire family,

I do not know where to begin to express our condolences to your family. We are so sorry about the loss of Spencer. Although we'd only met him briefly, we know how loved he was and that he couldn't ask for better, more dedicated parents and a fabulous extended family and network of friends to support and guide him.

I've asked my local friends and my family to keep your family and Spencer in their prayers. Anna, I couldn't help but describe you to my friends by saying you are the epitome of a true Southern Lady with a beautiful strength, tact, a gentle, hospitable heart and always a concern for others. I am sure you are handling this most difficult week no differently... I have also asked God to continue to bless you with the strength, special joy in life and grace that only you have.

May God Bless you all and may your little Angel Aggie watch over you from heaven until you meet again.

Dear Uncle Patrick, Aunt Anna, and Cousin Ryan

Words cannot explain the pain and sadness that has overcome me with the loss of your son Spencer. To you this feeling of heartache must be overwhelming.

Spencer may have lived a short life, but it was still a life worth living. He had two parents that loved him, and although we have not yet met, surely a terrific little brother.

I want you all to know that through this hardened time I will always be there for you, and keep you in my prayers daily. Spencer is truly in a better place, and we will all remember him dearly until we meet again in Heaven.

With Love, Kevin A. Squire
