Some of you might remember a few months ago when I posted my eulogy to my good buddy, Spence. That eulogy can be found here: http://www.menieres.org/forum/index.php/topic,20584.0.html Spence was mentally challenged, but he was gifted in so many other ways, the most profound of which one would discover in the life lessons he would teach those around him, without even knowing that he was doing so. That was the subject of my eulogy, to try to convey to the folks who came to his funeral a sense of the Spence I had known for 50 years, and the profound life lessons he taught me. Here's a shot of Spence with Winde taken at Epcot. Spence loved Epcot. And here's a shot of Spence and me on deck during his Disney cruise. That was the one thing he wanted to do that he had not had the chance. So a month before he died, he was cruisin' to the Bahama's. Anyway, Spence's brother recently uncovered a notebook written by Spence, within the pages of which Spence wrote down some thoughts that were special to him. I do not know where he came up with these thoughts and sayings. I expect that some of them he saw on certain church placards and he must of pulled off the side of the road and written them down when they struck his fancy. But for the next few weeks, I plan to give you one of these thoughts Spence had a special feeling about, enough to write them down. There are about 40 or so of them. Comment in between if you wish. But each day, lest I forget, I will give you another from Spence's special collection. I expect that many of you will be affected in some postive manner by Spence's choices. So without further adieu, exactly as Spence wrote them, the first: "In this World There Are Givers and Takers The Takers Eat Better The Givers Sleep Better." I can tell you with certainty; Spence slept very well.
