Uncle Sam was one of a kind. Whenever he would call my Dad, Dad’s face would light up and he had a grin from ear to ear! He couldn’t stop smiling and he would laugh and talk real loud. We always knew when Sam called Dad. Dad loved Sam more like a brother than an uncle. When Sam would come into town it was like a big event for all of us especially Dad! Wonderful memories❤️So sorry for all of you and the loss of your Dad. Gone but never forgotten.
