I have many memories of my Uncle Sam. He was fun, caring and the strongest Man I know. We always wanted him to be on our red rover team and quaked in our boots if he wasn't. He was always teasing me in a fun and loving way that made me feel special. Sheryl, Denise, Lonny and Regina my heart is heavy with grief for your loss but
I know he will be waiting with open arms for you when you meet again having all his pain gone and is strong and happy to be with you once again. But you might have to go find him at the local fishing hole with my Dad and Uncle Gerry sitting and fishing with a cold beer in his hand. If you see a rainbow always think of him watching over you while he waits. Love you all.

Dad, I'll miss you. Even when separated by distance you were never very far from me. It will remain that way, and I will see you again. Until then, RIP father.
Faith, hope, and love.
