Unhappy


Just got the news and I'm blown away. Such sad news and loss of yet another friend to epilepsy. Spencer and I along with many others, shared a friendly battle of men vs. women creating some of the funniest postings on the internet. He will be missed.
No one to fetch my beer.

I don't come on here often but got the email about it, always sad losing a someone that is friend to many of you, and of course condolences to his family, must be very hard for them.

RIP.

Wow! My heart just broke. I am so sorry to his family and close friends. My tears and prayers are with you. I went to the place he is but I came back. Maybe just to tell his family it is just love. Pure love. A wonderful place to be. And I am sure that's where Speber resides. He is probably teaching the angels how to play the harp.God bless you. Sometimes we don't get to ask why, we just love each other like your family does, and that gives us the answer why. He wont be forgotten. With eternal love, Teresa

I also received an inquiry from one of our members in the UK who wished to contribute to Speber's memorial fund. If you are not in the USA and would like to contribute to the fund, please send me a PM. I am willing to facilitate collections for the fund.

Hey, please add what you can to [Story] Writing tributes for Speber and his family.

You don’t have to be a poet or experienced in expressing yourselves. Just add a few words on how you feel re Speber’s passing. Keep it simple if you like- a line, a sentence, a paragraph. Please take a few minutes to share your thoughts as a tribute to Speber, in memory of Speber for his family.

Thank you

I haven't been on this site in a long time. Life has been a blur at times, but thoughts are with this person and this family.
As someone going through recovery after neurosurgery this summer hoping for great things to come, it does make me sad to think seizures can be so life ending to another person.
Thoughts are with this family.

I can't begin to say how sorry I am to his family for their loss.

When I first joined CWE Speber was one of the 1rst to friend me. I had been reading the men vs women thread before I checked the new posts laughing at everything. Tonight I will raise a cold one in his honor. His humor, openess, and friendly sunshine atitude will be greatly missed.
