To Wendy and the Spires Family,

I am truly at a loss to find the words that can adequately sustain you during your time of bereavement. Yancy was a good friend, I'm going to miss him, and I enjoyed working with him to pull technical miracles out of the hat with moments to spare. Rest In Peace Yancy. May God comfort you as you reflect on his life and contributions.
