Remembering a classmate

I am a graduate of Manchester High School and Dean was a classmate of mine. He was such a wonderful guy who we all throught the world of. We lost 3 classmates in the Viet Nam War and we honor them all at our class reunions. They will never be forgotten. All three guys were best friends in school. Dean maybe gone from our sight but his spirit lives in our hearts.

To my big brother

Dean I miss you more each day .I remember all the things we use the things we did .The time we were with fiends ,everyone told the parents we were going to Clinton to the show ,then we would get something to eat .Well we didn't go to Clinton ,we went to a party in Ann Arbor .Needles to say we had so much fun, none of us made it home by our curfew which was 12:am . We didn't leave the party till 3:00 am .Then on the way home we got a ticket .After we took everyone home we didn't get home until 4:30 . needless to say all hell broke out when e got home . We didn't tell mom about the ticket till 3 weeks later when we had to be in court . Mom was getting ready to leave for work ,you said mom you have to take us to Ann Arbor ,you gave her the ticket she didn't have time to yell at us so we were lucky .We got grounded for two weeks ,you said or the fun we had it was worth it . We had a lot of great times together .when the missing you gets to hard I have all the great things we did to remember . You was best man at my wedding .was the first one to welcome Jerry to the family . You came home on leave ,Jerry was in Vietnam ,I was 8 months pregnant . You took me shopping ,bought me a crib ,you got some stuffed animals for the baby . A bear that was bigger than me then you didn't know what the baby was ,so you got baby clothes in yellow ,light green ,plus other colors .I remember telling you next time we will do this for tour baby .I want you to know I think of you each day .I miss you so very much .I can remember people telling me in time it will be easer that is not true the hurt is just as bad .You were my big brother ,my best friend ,you are always in my heart ,my thoughts and my prayers Loving you always your little sister Sandy.

In Memory of my classmate - Dean

Dean was not only a classmate but a wonderful, fun loving friend. We honor him, Pete Valencich and Jim Bihlmeyer at all our class reunions. We all went to Manchester High School in Manchester, proud class of 1965. We were the only class who lost classmates in the Viet Nam War. They will always be remembered and honored by our class. I am best friends with Dean's sister, Sandy and we go back in time and talk about this great guy whose spirit we keep alive in our heart. We miss you so much Dean.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear 1LT Dean Francis Spaulding Jr, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Curt Carter
