We loved Charles so very much. We could not have gotten through the last few days without your love and help. Thank you all for your calls, cards, visits, flowers, plants, and your memorial contributions.
Many friends have inquired about memorials. We have . established the Charles and Michael Spears Memorial I Fund with the New Braunfels Public Library which will I purchase books in honor of Charles and Michael. We spent many happy hours reading to our boys from the time they were chubby-cheeked babies until they were in upper elementary school. Both boys continued to enjoy reading into adulthood. Charles met Mary in a college library. For these reasons, we could think of no better way to honor them.
Contributions may be made at the library or they may be mailed to the library at 700 E. Common, New Braunfels, TX 78130.
With our love and appreciation, Bill, Glynda and Mary Speant.

Potters offer unique pieces
“T hey’re looking for uniqueness and quality whether it be functional or sculptural,’’ said Terry Buck of Buck Pottery in Gruene. “You can go to Wal-Mart and buy a cup for $ 1.50, and it can do nothing for you when you get up in the morning to drink your coffee.”
David Hendley, of Old Farmhouse Pottery in the East Texas town Maydelle, sells more to the functional pottery shopper. His booth features drawer pulls, towel hangers, soap dispensers and electric and oil lamps.
He said shoppers come to the festival looking for die uniqueness of a handmade item.
"The main thing they want is something nobody else has,” Hendley said.
No two items are alike, and styles range from rustic to modern, Western to Eastern.
Billy Ray Mangham makes vibrantly colored freestanding and hanging figures. His
wolf and alligator heads and skulls topped with different hats appeal to customers who share Mangham’s sense of humor, he said.
Although he started his pottery career making functional items, he now sells all decorative sculpture including his “vamparo” head — a half-dog, half-vampire creature.
Flandmade pottery, whether functional or decorative enhances people’s lives, said Mangham, a founder of the festival.
Many visitors who didn’t buy much spent their day watching the potters spin and fire their wares.
Artists demonstrated the process of taking clay from a gooey glop to a polished product.
Demonstrations continue today.
