Even in death we can have an impact

A frequently used theme of funerals is how the deceased has impacted those around them throughout their life.
Memories are shared about what the man or woman accomplished in their existence that set in motion certain changes in the lives of others.
Ennisite Kelton Spence, whose passing drew one of the largest funeral services the city has seen, is still impacting the community he loved nearly two months after his passing.
District 10 Representative Jim Pitts made special notice of Spence’s death by drawing up a resolution honoring him in the Texas House of Representatives in Austin.
The document, now passed, details Spence’s life and family along with recognizing his kind heart and commitment to serving others.
Spence is the perfect example of an everyday citizen making as much of an impact as any public official or celebrity. Spence wasn’t hounded by paparazzi. His relationships weren’t dissected by the media as to whether they were distracting him from other responsibilities.
His accomplishments or failures weren’t blogged about or put on YouTube. Spence was just a normal guy who tried to live a good life and make a difference in his community.
Everything we do in this life, both good and bad, leaves an lasting impression whether we know it or not.
Spence didn’t do what he did so Pitts would pass a resolution praising him. It just turned out that way.
We would all do well to remember his example and, like him, strive to leave this world a better place.
