David Spillers arrived at The INN Between on September 1, 2017 and passed away peacefully on February 17, 2018. Initially, he was unsure about living with us, but he soon felt right at home. David was a young man who had spent many years on dialysis. He wanted to get better to be around for his children, but his body began to fail, and he made the difficult decision to spend his remaining time doing things he loved rather than be tethered to dialysis machines and doctors. This was a heart wrenching decision for David, one that he put a lot of thought into.
David enjoyed having his young son Junior with him and we at The INN Between equally enjoyed Juniors visits and hugs. David was blessed to have had frequent visitors. His friends and family all came to help care for and spend time with him, including his mother and sisters who traveled to Salt Lake City from Georgia. His partner, Allison, visited David between full time school, parenting and work to tend to his needs. Her presence brought the deepest comfort to David. David had the warmest smile, and even on the days that opening his eyes was a chore, he would ask others how they were doing. His loss has been deeply felt by all of us at The INN Between.
David’s family will be holding a private memorial service. His mother, Gwendolyn Spillars, wrote his obituary:
