    My sincere condolences to the Spellman family. Charlie and I had worked together on several projects during my time with IMS Gear in Virginia Beach and he was a good friend and mentor as well. Sorry to hear about his passing.

    So sorry for the loss of your husband and Dad. Our husband’s both died Christmas Eve of the same kind of brain tumor. So I understand the pain of your loss and the relief that he is free from fear and suffering. They are home with God. Bill’s service is Thursday. My heart and prayers will be with you as you go through your own grieving. Be strong. God bless you all.
