Joyce and family, Words can't begin to express the sadness and sorrow of hearing of your great loss. My heart is heavy but the memories of the happy times help lift me up. You can't help but smile thinking of Spider because he always left you with warm and happy thoughts. He was a wonderful person who will leave a huge void in our lives. Love and prayers are sent to you all during these trying times. Our memories will keep him close to us. I am so sorry.
