May 7, 2007 ~ Just thinking of you..... / Kimberly Hey you...I was just listening to the 2 Daryl Worley songs that always make me think of you...."Have You Forgotten" and "I Miss My Friend". I went up to the memorial monument yesterday at the VFW...sat there for a minute, held onto your dog tags hanging from the field cross...ran my fingers acrossed your name etched in granite...it was a nice warm sunny day yesterday...giving me another reason to think of you, as the song goes, "sunny days seem to hurt the most....." (Who You Be Today). You were on my mind today when I was driving to the bank....I sat at the light on the corner of South Airport and Garfield..waiting to turn left, I looked up at the blue skies with the nice puffy white clouds and wondered two things...what you were doing right then up in Heaven....and what you would of been doing if you were still here on Earth, possible playing paintball, napping, working at Best Buy....again, I remember everything happens for a reason and one day I'll understand why God took you that day...really on November 21st, even though you weren't with Him until December 8th. I'll never forget the moment that I found out that you had passed away. I remember it like it was yesterday, I was driving up LaFranier on my way to get Jb from school and Stacey Gonzalez called and told me that you had passed away the previous night...I just remember saying, No...it's not true. I got off the phone with her and started crying like I hadn't cried in a LONG time. I got to Jb's school and sat in the parking lot for a minute wondering how I could maintain my composure long enough to get him without people asking me if I was ok...when I realized that the tears weren't going to stop for nothing, I walked into the school with my head down and got Jb....he asked, "Mom, why are you crying?" I told him that I found out that you had left the day before to go live with God. Needless to say, that day was the first hard day among many. It was December 9th....our family Christmas Party was December 10th and I told my mom that I wouldn't be there...she wanted me to come but I knew I couldn't stop crying and didn't want to talk about it let alone ruin everyone else's day. I remember pulling into the driveway to drop Jb off and telling him to, "...tell Grandma that momma was to sad to stay." He said, "Ok momma, I love you." My mom called me later that night and I asked her if she would keep Jb over night because I just wanted time to myself...she said yeah. I ended up going crazy in the house by myself that I ended up going to Streeter's where I knew people who could relate to my pain would be. Sure enough...Mayer, Sam, Wilson....etc...were there and they had a memorial tribute to you in Ground Zero that night. It was exactly what I needed. It has only gotten easier since that day but from time to time I have these little break downs because you are heavy on my mind at these times. I will never forget you....I wish you were here to tell you how much I cared. I love you Spencer Akers......me.
True American Hero / Misty (sister of Fallen Marine Cpl. Rusty Washam )
The Fallen Written by Andrea Senter
They never thought when they left here their families they'd see no more No one dares to think about The high price of such a war.
If you asked them why they did it They'd say because it was right Someone has to stand up And someone has to fight
A world away they defend our cause, as we tuck our kids in bed. Some give all for all of us, And somewhere tears will be shed.
They do not ask for fame or fortune Just that we recognize We are here, free, today, Because the fallen have paid the price.
I am so sorry for you loss. I lost my brother Marine Cpl. Rusty Washam February 14, 2006 in Iraq by a suicide bomber he was only 21. People keep saying it will get easier as time goes by its been alittle over a year since we lost Rusty and it still feels like yesterday. I will keep you and your family in my prayers. May God Bless you and help heal your Broken Hearts from this huge loss. My brother has a site to it is rusty-washam.memory-of.com
Watching over the boys / Vicki (Friend) I am sure its you. And I wanted you to know that I thank you. Course I am sure you are hearing alot of us praying to you. You are the angel on Ricks shoulder.

Let's see, is this 29 for the 9th year in a row? We still miss you like crazy...wish you were here. We will always remember you as a hero! Until we see you again.....
Hard Times / Matt Mayer (Roomate) In Spencers honor I ask that everyone who reads this message doesn't forget the sacrifices of the men and women serving in the military. I know the situation in grim in Iraq but don't let these guys and girls die in vain. Bring them home soon, safe but with the mission completed. Ask any soldier what the worst thing could be in a war and they won't tell you dying or being away from family, they would say losing. Keep the fight strong and I love you Spence.

You can shed tears that he is gone, or you can smile because he has lived. You can close your eyes and pray that he'll come back, or you can open your eyes and see all he's left. Your heart can be empty because you can't see him, or you can be full of the love you shared. You can turn your back on tomorrow and relive yesterday, or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday. You can remember him only that he is gone, or you can cherish the memory and let it live on. You can close your mind, be empty and turn your back. Or you can do what he'd want, smile,open your eyes, love and go on.
You will never be forgotten!
FOR SPENCER / Lisa Copeland
today i thought of you / Erin (friend) When soldiers have been baptized in the fire of a battle-field, they have all one rank in my eyes. It doesn't take a hero to order men into battle. It takes a hero to be one of those men who goes into battle.
~ spence i saw this quote and i thought of you, you will always be my hero!
Hey little brother. I wrote to you on December 8th but for some reason is did not come through. This past year without you has been so difficult for our family. I wanted to just remember some of our wonderful Christmas memories. Remember when we wanted to cut down a Christmas tree and surprise mom and dad? We searched our whole property to find just the right one only to find it just over the fence line on the neighbors land. We decided to clinb half way up and start cutting just the top out of this giant tree,(I'm sure that was safe!) It took us over an hour to cut it down as we took turns climbing and cutting! When it finally came down we were really amazed at the size of it but boy was it a beauty!!! As we started to drag it home we were even more amazed at the weight of that sucker!!! It took us well over an hour to get this fantastic tree home. Dad knew exactly where it had come from and said "oh the neighbors will never know who stole that tree as there is a path six feet wide and two feet deep from the stump to our back door!" Mom said Christmas was ruined as we has a stolen tree,but you and I thought it was the BEST TREE EVER!!!! I smile everytime I think of you in the top of that tree. I miss you more than words can ever say. So many great times at Christmas,I will never forget. Love you always, Your Brat sister Jeannine
January 8th, 2006 / Kimberly 13 months...wow, how can I still not believe that you are gone? I look through the pictures and come to the one of you being brought back to Michigan and it just blows my mind. It's hard to imagine you, once so full of life, strong and courageous, now gone, gone forever. I know I don't even have to say this...but watch over Rick, he's stepping into your shoes to help finish where life so unfairly had you leave off. I miss you...Jb tells me that he misses you from time to time still, which amazes me in itself since he is so young but the memories of you still stick with him.
"MERRY CHRISTMAS" / Johnette Moninger (Friend)
A brief moment of darkness was all that I knew, before Heaven's Gate came into my view. Loved ones and friends I had missed for many years, welcomed me with open arms and many happy tears. All the hurt, fear, and pain that I have ever known, is gone from my life, I am finally home. I gazed upon the Lord's sweet smiling face, and for the first time in my life I knew and felt His grace. I know that you miss me, but please dry your eyes. I will always be watching and loving you from my new home in the sky. A cool breeze on your face, a touch of light rain, I will send as a reminder that we will be united again. Life on earth is but one brief moment in time, I am finally home, Eternity is mine.
your still my hero / Erin (Friend) it has been over a year now and i still cant believe that you are gone. you are in my thoughts and i know that you listen when i pray. It has been a sad year without you, as will be every year that follows. you will never be forgotten spence.
