From late nights of Foosball at Bobs to Gar spearing by lanterns, from Men's Softball Games to Three on Three Basketball, from canoe trips to pool tables...Sam will be missed, but not forgotten.
Peace and Love, Michael

I was so surprised to read about Sam. Tim, I know how you must be feeling and I am so sorry for your lose as well as his family. When you two would come in to Shopoffs it was fun all around and laughs. I will miss his smiles and his caring attention to those in his life. I will be in Texas on vacation or I would be there for you Tim ! Love and prayers to all of you!
