To the whole "Spidell Clan",
I got to watch most of Spidell kids grow up, watched them raise families of their own and some them become grandparents. They know what family is all about, the joys & tears, the love'n each other with their whole hearts (when sometimes you don't like them), thru thick or thin. When I moved to Auburn some 37 years ago and got to go to a party out a the Spidell place and met Kathy, Jack & kids I knew then what down the earth, fun loving people they were. I will pray for all who mourn the loss of Jack. Hugs to all of you, God's blessings to you & yours.
