"Gpa Spencer, over the breif time I was allowed your aquaintance, you made me a part of the family. I felt like one of your grand-kids. I will never forget the hilarious out burst of laughter you and Dan belted as we spent afternoons watching funny movies ( Especially Congfu Panda) or how every dog you saw was "Jake". Until next time: " Your a good man Charlie Brown!""
