YOUR DUTY HERE IS DONE NOW AS OURS WILL SOMEDAY BE SO GO HIM NOW TO PLACES ONLY HEROES SEE. ~Author Unknown

We are the land of the free because we are the home of the brave. God bless you Spence.
Hey I just wanted you to know that I did not forget your
birthday!! You old fart!!! I have written twice but they are not
showing up....you know that I am mental with the computer! Just
know that we all still miss you and YES I am still wearing your dog
tags! Love you Spencer-boar!! Your brat sister!
we miss you and remember you still / Tracee McQuiston (friend of friend and wife of soldier form B co ) Another year has gone by and I just wanted to let you know that we miss you and still think of you often. I just recently met Adam. Such a small world, Erica the girl from work that went with me to your funeral, is his cousin. We talked about Matt's new baby. Just saw pictures of him. He is so cute. I am getting Larry the rest of his tattoo finished for Christmas. It is a tribute to you and his best friend John and the rest of you who had to leave us so soon. I just wanted to let you know you are still in our minds thoughts and will always be in our hearts.
Just a hello / Vicki G. Ricks Mom Well Spencer, Rick is married, he made sure you were remembered at the reception , where table was set for his missing friend and he reminded us all of the sacrifices made by many so that we could enjoy days like that. He had a part of you with him the whole day and I am sure he was wishing you were standing next to him. Anyway, just wanted to say your thought of, and thank you.
I remember / Gary Smithq Thanks for being you. Thanks for being an inspiration and a doubtless motivation to continue through anything. Your good character made your company valuable enough to enjoy the time we risked our lives and you laid down yours. I thank you for being there, from the first time I really remember you in training when I asked if I should charge the enemy position because I was separated from my squad. I love you. I don't really want to know how you died because I remember you and my memories are happy and imagining you in pain and suffering as much as I admired you in every sense makes me cry. I'm glad I met you and tell GOD to keep places for the rest of us. We'll be there when OUR jobs are done. I'll give the rug I bought for you in Bagdad to your parents if I ever get my gear returned to me from B co.
So...it's been 2 years and although alot of things have changed, one thing remains the same...I still miss you. I've had three dreams about you since the day you passed...one was shortly after you died and the second one was the night of November 20th, 2007....morning of the 21st...and I was so happy to see you in my dreams. I told Jody about it and then later that day we thought, "Wow, this is the day he was in the explosion!" My mom said that dreams are the way that people that have passed communicate with you, I said, "He must be saying, 'Don't forget about me!'"...you know I never will. My mom says I need to do a better job of taking care of the flowers at your memorial monument....and I had to remind her that I am not one with a green thumb! Then last night I had another dream with you in it....and it didn't hit me until 8pm tonight after I dropped my mom off at her house after the X-Mas Party...I pulled out of her driveway and thought...."wow...it's the 8th." I called my mom and told her about my 3rd dream of you and how it was 2 years ago today that you left us all. Jody is living with me now and says that you used to call her "trouble"....she misses you too and admitted tonight that she has always brushed me off everytime I have tried talking about you because she never knew and still doesn't know how to deal with losing a loved one. Oh, how so many people cared about you.....I'm sure you know now. We ALL miss and LOVE you more then we probably ever told you...I know that for myself is true. Love you very much and miss you more then you know........ Can't wait until the day that I see you again.
Me and Jb
Sorry to hear of his loss -- he was a good kid from a good family. / Troy Martz (Childhood friend ) Spencer and I were friends as kids; my folks (Thelma and Gary) are old friends of Don and Carole. He and I used to play together for hours -- Leggo's, army, etc -- my memories of him are all as a kid since I moved away in 1982.
I just head of Spence's death -- I haven't heard from them in years and haven't been back home to Cadillac in a couple of decades.
God bless the Akers family -- you all are in my prayers.
God bless Spencer -- you have touched more lives than you could ever guess.
Spencer/ Shayln (Friend) I miss you Spencer. I cant believe its been 2years. Not a day go's by that I dont miss you. <3
2 years since the explosion... / Kimberly Here's to you, and the sacrifice you made two years ago today, a day I wil never forget..
Missing you Spence / Kimberly
REMEMBERING YOU ON THIS VETERANS DAY AND THE UPCOMING 2 YEAR MARK OF THE DAY THAT CHANGED ALL OF OUR LIVES.....WE MISS YOU AND THINK ABOUT YOU ALL THE TIME.
KIMBERLY AND JB
Thank you to a true hero / Tracee McQuiston (brief friend ) I first met Spencer on-line and unfortunately I never got to meet him in person. My friend from work knew him and she went with me to the funeral. And as this world seems so small, I recently married a wonderful man who served with Spencer. He was there on that day. He was the gunner in the third humvee. Being that I am also in the Guard and know how hard it can be, I have never asked Larry about that day. I know that it will always be a part of his life and a memory permenently burned into his heart.
I am truely humbled and honored to have known Spencer, even if it was for a short time.
Thank you for doing what you had to do and please look after Sgt Larry when he goes back.
Missing you / LeAnne H. (friend) I miss you more and more each day! It's times like these when I miss your awesome advice and your eternal smile!!!!!!!!!!! God bless you Spence.
Its been awhile / Vicki G. (Ricks Mom ) I know its been awhile ince I stopped in. But I wanted to say, like Kimberly and Patti, Thank you for watching over the boys. I know that you were on Ricks shoulder more than once helping him to be safe. You will have some more of your buddies heading off to danger too soon...watch over them too ok!
Thank you.. / Kimberly God bless you in Heaven for keeping Rick and Wilson safe and watching over them....some things never change : )
Thinking of you and remembering you ALWAYS!
Memorial/ Jamison Yager (Fellow Soldier ) Hey man, I've had a bracelet for a while, the KIA kind. I lost it once, for about a day, but Sherri found it. I was nearly hysterical, so, I figured I ought to make the damned thing permanent. I got a tat, it's not much, just black text, but I thought that way I'd always have it with me. Sherri misses you too, we still talk about you sometimes. When Lexi gets older, I plan to tell her about you, the tough old team leader that sculpted her dad into a half way decent infantryman. When I make it to the other side, we'll catch up, for now, you'll just have to read my posts on here. See you when I see you.
Dear.Spencer.My MOM and me are coming to visit you. I'm going to make you a giant card of you wining the war. I will also bring a little UnitedStates of Amarica flag with a nother card with a flag and GODBLEAMERICA.
