Sallye, what a shock when we read the Kingsport obituary for Spurgeon. We lost
e-mail connection a while back and knew no problem he may have had. I so appreciated his contact with me during my bout with cancer. Here's hoping the Lord will continue to manifest His presence with you, Rhonda, Mark and Michelle. Comfort is available after the initial condolences whenever you have the need to call upon the Holy Spirit to intercede and give you strength to

Dear Sallye, Rhonda, Mark and Michele,
Ellen and I learned yesterday of Spurgeon’s passing. Please accept our sincere condolences.
Spurgeon was a wonderful person, as you well know. He was one of the most intelligent and caring persons that I have ever known. Well before the days of computer searches of old documents Spurgeon could cite references to previous reports from memory, spin around to his files and produce

Dear Family, Ben and I were sorry to hear about Spurgeon's death. We were at Chapman when he was there, so we were in high school together. I remember that he was valedictorian of our class in 1958. Please accept our sympathy. May God give you His love, peace, and comfort. Ben and Gwen Gramling

Sallye, David and I did not know Spurgeon had been ill. We haven't seen you in so many years. Of course, we have fond memories of times we spent together playing bridge and other social times as well with the Hughes. If we are ever in the area, we will try to make contact. I assume you are at the address in Greer. Please accept our sorrow and prayers for you and the children and know you are in our thoughts as well.
Much love, Dave and June

Dear Sallye & family,Spurgeon was my first "boss" at Eastman and he got me off to a good start. He had the keenest mind for detail that I have ever encountered. He was fair, encouraging and honest - everything that one could want in a supervisoe. But even more Spurgeon was a very good man, one that I was proud to claim as "friend" throughout our time at Eastman and beyond. With you I grieve his loss. You are very much in my thoughts and prayers. Grace and peace, martin.

I worked with Spurgeon for many years at Eastman Chemical Co. He was one of the most respected and well-thought-of men there. May God comfort your family and give you peace.
