Oh, Uncle Sam..I am just lost for words. You had the biggest heart and were always there for anyone that needed a helping hand. You always had a big smile on your face. You are very,deeply loved and missed.

So glad I met you in 1991. You always would pop in during my cook outs & pool parties. You never stayed long. But I was always glad to see you.. You were always there for me Sam.. So Helpful in so many ways. Always volunteering to fix something for me. Never had to ask. And as years went by we were in & out of touch. But in 2001. I ran into you working on gutters a few blocks away as I was driving by. And then you always seemed to be around every weekend. And we fell in Love. 💘 Although our Paths had changed 5yrs later. You always stayed in touch periodically & still tried to help me out when you were able.
I'll never forget you Sam Kerley❣
Love you always deep in my Heart❣
You were Truley loved by me 💞

Oh Sam, I wouldn’t know where to begin. Your brother is bustling around the house gathering photos of you while laughing, crying, and planning your memorial service with your beautiful daughter Eryn and your sisters. Above all else, I hope you know that you are loved deeply by your family and friends. Your personality was larger than life. You will be missed. ❤️ You are our angel now, so it’s your turn to watch over us. We love you brother-in-law, Kris
