I am so very sad and disheartened to hear of Samantha's passing. I did not know her personally, but helped to care for her as her nurse once. She was a very kind woman. One whose soul shined bright. My condolences to all family and friends...May God hold you close and comfort you.

We would like to extend our sincere condolences to Ms. Samantha's family and friends. I did not know Samantha personally but I often ran into her in the hallway when dropping my son off at school. I truly appreciated her beautiful smile and her Friendliness. My heart breaks at the loss of one so young, giving and generous. As my son moves up to the 3's class this month, I am saddened that he will not get to know Ms. Samantha and experience her love and kindness. There is a classroom of little angels up in heaven right now that has just been blessed with a wonderful teacher. Our prayers will be with Ms. Samantha's family and friends during this very difficult time.

This breaks my heart. Samantha was in my fifth grade at Fairlawn Elementary School. I never saw her after those days, but from what I have read in this guestbook I am sure she maintained the kindness, generosity, and happiness she demonstrated as I child. I am so sorry for the loss to her family and friends.
