Ralph, Stacey and the rest of your family, I am very sorry for your loss.
I enjoyed your Dad so much as I was tearing up the halls of EHS.
RIP Emerson

To all of the Spicer Family: I am very sorry for your loss of your husband, father, grandfather and uncle. I have very fond memories of living on Lindell Road and getting to know the Spicers....all of them. I have so many memories of Emerson and him walking to the barn every morning. Sadly missed by all his family and all that knew him.
