Mr. Springer was the Tarrytown barber, and a place where you would always receive profound words of wisdom whenever you sat in his barber chair for a haircut.
I thank my God in all my remembrance of you. Philippians 1:3

So sorry to hear about the passing of your loved one. Mr. Springer was known & loved by many. I fondly remember him as I passed by Lovell's Barber Shop cutting hair & teaching many. May the family find comfort & strength in the Lord at this difficult time. Rest in peace in God's loving arms.
