Spencer, my little buddy. I never in a million years dreamed of making such a great friend in just a years time. You gave me so many great memories. You gave me your knowledge. It was a true blessing to have worked for and with you this past year. You always had kind words. You always gave me your opinion. You always drove me to believe in myself and encourage me to keep going when I wanted to give up. My friend it was a true blessing to have worked for you. May you rest easy little buddy. I'm sure going to miss you Spencer......
