On Sunday, I'm a guest to play in a charity golf scramble, to honor the life of Spencer Squire, and to raise money for a few charities. We did a story on Spencer and his family two and a half years ago, a couple months after Spencer had passed away, when he was only 6 years old. It's an incredibly touching story; please click on the still picture above to see what we aired in October 2007. If you'd like to learn more about Spencer, here's a link to his website: www.spencersquire.com.

I never met Spencer, but after spending a lot of time with his parents Anna and Pat, I truly felt like I had known him. His death was sudden, and it was very sad, but it was not in vain. His parents made the decision to donate his organs, and in that way his spirit lived on, while his organs helped others live longer, and better lives. It's a cause the Squires still believe in, and money raised from the 3rd annual Spencer Squire Memorial Tournament will go, in part, to the Donate Life foundation. The Squires are Aggies, so they also donate money to the Texas A&M baseball fund, which is set up in Spencer's name. And they raised money to build a playground at Spencer's school, Boon Elementary.

These are good people, raising money for good causes, and while doing so, they are helping their son's legacy live on.
