So sorry to hear about Sam's passing. I remember years ago when my, then fiance now husband, would pick Sam and siblings up and take to church. He was just a child then but had a heart for God.

I'm so sorry to hear Sam has passed. He was such a kind man. He took great care of my brother Brian when he was house manager for Midwest. He would walk many miles to get to work each day. He was always truly concerned for those he cared for- making sure they ate healthy food, kept the house in good order, and made sure they were happy with life. I kept in touch with him for a long time after he left and was so happy for him when he graduated from college and started his new career.
You have my deepest sympathy. He will be missed by so many!
Sincerely,
Nancy Tanner
