After knowing each other for 50 odd years, it feels strange and sad to realize you're not there anymore. We will miss stopping by and sharing many memories, both current and from so long ago, and hearing the latest about family and friends, old and new.

Farewell, old friend! It has been an honor to know you.

Darlene and I send our sincere condolences to the family and regret not being able to attend.

My sincere condolences to Sam's Family. I knew Sam for many years. He was a very generous man and very willing to help his fellow agents from Allied Van Lines. It's not many years ago that Sam drove a truck to Saskatoon with a shipment on and he sat in my office for quite awhile and we shared stories.

My deepest condolences to the entire Meyers family. Sam (chicken man) as I was introduced to him many years ago will always bring a smile to my face, he was kind , always ready to help with a shipment or a problem. and yes always competitive at the Allied convention of who walked out of the casino with more money.
Thank you Sam for being the man you were and for the great business you ran with your great team.

I was very saddened to learn of Sam's passing. During my visits to Morrow's Moving, I always enjoyed talking with Sam about the many crazy stories and people in the moving business. Sam was one of the character's that made this business fun. The SIRVA (Allied & northAmerican) family send our sincere condolences to Pat and family.
Take care,

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Sam was a warm and friendly man. I remember our first conversations in the spring of1992. A man with a strong work ethic, he was an honest businessman that had recently relocated from Alberta. Sam was a great neighbour that raised a wonderful family and was always available to offer help. He will be deeply missed.
