I have so many memories of President and Mrs Spence from the time I was ten years old when my parents began their time working at Evangel, then as an Evangel student myself, and finally as the parent of an Evangel student. You could not go to an Evangel game, concert, play or exhibit without seeing Dr Spence right in the middle of it all. They were both so supportive of every student group. My adult children have memories of sitting at his big desk when they went to work with their Grandma Stair (his secretary for many years) as children. He would always ask “Who is this little lady?” and they would giggle, delighted. In much later years I had the opportunity to “lunch” with Mrs Spence and my grandmother Bernice, who were fast friends for so many years. It was always delightful to sit and listen to their stories. My prayers are with the Spence Family during this time. God is faithful. Pam (Stair) Calvin
