Grandpa Sam was a great person. Growing up, he always encouraged me to do the right thing by going to school and to further my education. He was a man with pride, always had a smile in his face. He always wanted the best for everyone. He always made it a priority for years to talk to my dad on the phone a few times during the week. He would always ask for me and to see how I was doing? We will definitely cherish those moments. He will truly and dearly be missed. Until we meet again. Rest in peace grandpa. I love you ❤️
