Hi Pat and Ryan....
It was great spending time with you this last weekend at the UTSA father/son basketball camp and at Chad and Kerri's home afterward. Thank you for sharing so much of Spencer with us. Trey and Ryan are cut out of the same cloth and had a great time together. We hope to meet up sometime at an A&M game...
Best,

God bless you and your family. I have never met you all, but I stumbled across Spencer's page after registering with LifeGift and reading their newsletter. I saw the gentleman that rode his bike across Texas in memory of Spencer. What a touching story. Spencer and his family will now forever be in my thoughts and prayers.

I found one of the balloons released in honor of Spencer. It reached Georgia by the next day. I found this web site while researching the balloon launch out of curiosity. It sounds like Spencer was a wonderful child and I feel honored to have participated in this remembrance of his life. I have mailed the balloon back to the school.

Anna, I received your card with it's wonderful message today. Thank you so much. I want to let you know that Dave's organs were donated and I received notification a few days ago that the sight of two women had been restored & that Dave's skin, bone, & connective tissues had been banked. We'd registered to be donors in other states we've lived but never in TX so when I saw the link on Spencer's website I registered immediately. I'm so sorry for your loss but I am happy you had the opportunity to know Dave and am very grateful for the compassion you've shown me. You are doing incredible things to honor your son; he, his siblings, and the rest of the community are very lucky to have you & Patrick in our lives.

Dear Anna and Patrick,

You don't know me, but I am one of your very extended family, June Talvitie-Siple. Patsy and I met through some travels over the years. I don't know most of my extended family in Texas, but that does not mean that I don't wonder and care for each of you.

I am so sorry to just now hear of Spencer's death. I had to put his life in the family line to understand my relation to this wonderful little boy, who lives on through others and his organ donations.

This last year has been difficult for you and I know that through your faith that you are finding comfort, but please also know that I will also be holding you in my heart as well as you heal from this tragedy.

Love,
June Talvitie-Siple (Daisy Johnson Talvitie's daughter, great-nice of Aunt Lonie Bright)

"God and the Angel"

God said to the angel, a new angel's here
And the angel rejoiced and grinned ear to ear
So tell me God, who is he? she pressed
Oh curious angel, just one of my best

He was charming, athletic, funny and sweet
His Aggie devotion could not be beat
His eyes did sparkle above his disarming smile
His long list of friends was a country mile

The angel was spellbound has God spoke with pride
She wanted to meet him and show him inside
But she listened on as God told more
Spencer Squire was loved and adored

The tributes and honors come as no surprise
For he more than touched so many lives
He was precious and loving right from the start
He was larger than life, with a Texas-sized heart

Go my angel, welcome him Home today
And remember his family whenever you pray
His time on earth may have ended it's true
But his soul stays alive as he start life anew!

God bless,
Kim Whitbeck

Dear Squire and Kirksey families,

I signed up on the organ donor website today. I am truly amazed at the strength of your families. What a model for us all. Hard to believe it's been a year now since Spencer left us. I think of you all often. Keep working. Your efforts are saving lives with the power of one.

Spencer's Poem

Why God, you want to say.
Did you have to take my little
boy away.

He was so young and had so
much left to do, why did you
take Spencer to live with you.

God reply is one that is simple
and sweet, Spencer is now sitting at
Jesus' feet.

So on those days when the clouds
seem so gray, know that Spencer is
in heaven painting rainbows away.

Spencer,
A year ago today our world forever changed. I can honestly say that not a day has passed that you have not been a part of my day...a precious thought, a special memory, a smile and many tears.
Every Sunday I sit in the church sanctuary, I am reminded of your baptism. The theme of the sermon that morning was rainbows. Pastor Underwood asked us to pick a piece of stained glass in the windows and claim it as ours. I look at "my piece" with only thoughts of you.
I am sure you see Peyton as he runs through the Children's Garden yelling 'Hello Spencer' with a doughnut in his hand.
You have the most remarkable parents, family and friends. They are living examples of strength, courage and love. You are forever in my heart!
