The family of Spencer Walden would like to thank our family and friends for all of their love and support during this difficult time. Saying thanks does not seem enough, so we want to acknowledge the friends, family and community who have helped us in our time of need. Spencer gave us so many good memories and precious moments.

As good as we thought he was as his family, we are amazed by the number of lives he touched, and stories you shared with us about your personal experiences with him. The out pouring of generosity and love has been heartwarming. We have received an abundance of donations and want you all to know we are so very grateful. We intend to pay all our blessings forward by honoring Spencer and the causes he believed in! Our hope is that his spirit will continue to guide you just as it will guide us.

Thank you and many blessings to you all!
