Live life while you have it <3
Yesterday my amazing weekend came to a tragic halt. My friend Spencer, who has been struggling with his battle against cancer for a year now, past away. Before I say anything else I think it’s important for anyone reading this to have an idea of just how amazing this kid was. Spencer was the type of kid who was always smiling. He was a talented gymnast, an athlete, and a great friend. He is the type of kid that would literally never hurt a fly and would do anything to make you smile. Even during the hardest parts of his battle he managed to stay smiling. He fought like a warrior and never gave up. Even in his last hours, despite the emotional and physical pain he was able to give a thumbs up to his family and write “I love you” on his moms arm. At the Age of 14 this amazing kid lost his life. If only he had the chance to live a few more years he would have done something amazing.
This is a tragic reminder of the fact that life does have a guaranteed life span. One day you’re here and the next you may not be. That is why it is so important to live life to the fullest and take the joy and memories out of every experience to make the most of the time you have in this world.
My condolences go out to the Reis family and all of his friends who are affected by this devastating loss. R.I.P Spencer…Fly high and rest easy <3
