I was so saddened to hear about Mr. Spears passing away. I met him only once but I will always remember how gracious and welcoming he was to me at his home. Plus, how happy he was cooking up delicious food outside (I think fried fish) along with enjoying all his family and friends around him. He will be truly missed by all those who knew and loved him. God bless his family and may the Lord give them peace and comfort during their time of grief. Phyllis Meadows

We are so truly sad to hear of the passing of Mr. Spears. He lived next door to us until we sold 3 months ago. Mr. Spears was a wonderful and giving neighbor. Our hearts go out to all his family. R.I.P.
