Shared Thanksgiving with his family. I now know where his wit, his love of life, music, and everyone came from.

I had met his parents and wife and kids; fantastic and loving. His youngest sister was sweet and loving as well.

But the family is total love. the generosity and compassion and love of life they showed was the most wonderful experience.

He never really talked openly about his epilepsy until this forum. It was just a seizure disorder that wasn't talked about, even with his family, yet their love was unconditional.

This forum helped a great guy be even better.

The family says thanks for all the warm thoughts.
Hugs to everyone.

I had been wondering about Speber the passed few times I was on this forum. I was out of town Thanksgiving week, so didn't get word of his passing until this weekend. How very sad. He was a wonderful inspiration and he will be greatly missed. My condolences to his wife and family.

Shelley thank you so much for sharing his songs with us. They are a tribute to him.

He was such a good friend. Anytime I needed a song, he would get it for me at the auditorium. He always cared about what type of music we all liked.

For those who have not been to Speber's Auditorium he has a poll asking you what type of music you like. You can still answer that poll.

He will be resurrected. That is the happy part. I share in the grief here, too. Please give my condolences to his family.

:e: My grief cannot be measured. Speber had been a very good friend. We would PM about music, writing. Aspects of similarity.

Yes. He would not want us crying but that I did as I'm sure did many.

Speber had one of the most gentle of spirits. He was a teacher not only of music but of how to live life by example.

Below I have provided a link to Speber -Poetry/Lyrics/Personal StoryTributes for anyone one who wishes to celebrate him with words. A tender, talented man who gave "us" cause to celebrate life.

Thank you, friend, for the song "The Three Little Birds" by Bob Marely. I'll not worry and try to embrace life and art as you did.

Renee, I know Shelley is trying to get you in here. So when your eyes meet my words know that I am sending you and your children nothing but peace and love from Long Island to Austin. Namaste, Cinnabar

I haven't been on here in quite awhile and I decided to log on today to perhaps talk out some issues I've had lately. I saw that Speber had passed and it just shook me, and my heart is just breaking for his family. It's so scary to think about E taking someone's life, especially Speber's as he was a great person. I will be praying for his family and my heart goes out to you.
