He fought the good fight but did not have the strength to go on. In his final days Spence would say, "Praise GOD for a beautiful day", "I have JESUS tears", and "GOD is good, GOD is LOVE, and HIS mercy endureth forever." Scripture from family: Psalms 91:14-16 It is written: Because he has loved Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him securely on high, because he has known My name. He will call on Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him and honor him. With a long life I will satisfy him, and let him behold My salvation." Amen.
