I am so sorry to hear of Spanky's passing, I dated and lived with him many years ago and just heard of his passing. I am trying to reach his daughter Britney. He never failed to surprise me and make me smile. I will miss you my friend

Please accept my deepest sympathy for the loss of your loved one, Llewellyn.  May you find comfort in the words written at Acts 24:15, where God promises to bring back to life those we have lost in death by means of a resurrection.  In the future He will also eliminate our enemy, death.(Isaiah 25:8)  This gives us the wonderful hope of being reunited with our loved ones, forever.  Until then, I hope the memories of Llewellyn and these promises from God comfort you in the days to come.

So sorry for your loss, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time.  Daryle

What a good guy. A hard worker, especially at the club.
Well respected by all and a good friend.
