"Hi tyreek this is Mrs.Tina I love u so much, you will always be in my heart. I will miss the time when you gave me all those hugs and kiss, when you told me how much you love me like a mother that meant so much to me. I also will miss when you come to me and ask me Mrs. Tina is my lips are dry, I'm looking for a girl friend or how you like my new hair cut or better yet how do you like my new sneakers. There will never be another you, I could never say goodbye, I will say welcome to God's Kingdom. You are in a better place now, I will take the memories and cherish them. You will always be my speciial son. It's always heard to say goodbye. I could see that beautiful smile on your face, to hear the laughter will always cheer me up when I'm down, so I know your spirit will always be around. It's  hard to come into the school not able to see you here, and to see you do that crazy dance that you do, No one can top that. I'm very hurt not able to see you Graduate, But on the other hand, I Congratulate you that God have embrace his love and you have made it to God's Golden Pearly Gates, you can't get no better then that. The light in our candle will never go out, It will always signified that you are the sunshine, that lights up the darkness that surround us during the thunderstrom that greets us each and everyday. So just to say all of that, you will always have a special part in my heart. Love You Always.
Your School Mother
Mrs. Tina Lynah"

"Tyreek........my heart aches double fold right now.....I'm trying to process the loss of you and Jermaine and it's the hardest task god has ever given me. I feel like It would have been better if I could have took your place so u can have the full life you deserved. Unfortunately gods plan is sometimes unfair to us but he knows best. I was so excited to see how much you had grown and how deep your voice was lol. Pleased to see the young man you've grown to be since I last saw you.  I was looking forward to you coming in the summer. You will be missed but you have god and jer to look over u. Watch over your mother and you will always be in our hearts in spirit.  Love you rest in peace."

"Tyreek "the little brother"

For years I thought Tyreek was Debbie's little brother, because he was always around mommy Jackie and Debra no one could tell otherwise, as Tyreek was treated as a son and as a little brother. Aunt Sheron   you've done well in grooming the man Tyreek was and God plans, ways and thoughts far exceeds ours so be comforted as the comforter Jesus Christ wraps you individually in his bosom as he alone understands and can grant you the peace that passes all understanding...Tyreek as I remember him was handsome, quite, humble and always smiling. Here's a poem in tribute to the late Tyreek Spencer... You will be missed dearly, gone but not forgotten:
Life is but a stopping place,
A pause in what's to be,
A resting place along the road,
to sweet eternity.
We all have different journeys,
Different paths along the way,
We all were meant to learn some things,
but never meant to stay...
Our destination is a place,
Far greater than we know.
For some the journey's quicker,
For some the journey's slow.
And when the journey finally ends,
We'll claim a great reward,
And find an everlasting peace,
Together with the lord."
