Pearl, Daphne, Shelley and Eddie and family - so sorry to hear about Sam - May happy memories you shared together brighten the clouds, lessen the pain and may God be with you always.
While I didn't get to know Sam that long - I do remember his friendly smile and how he made me feel welcome when I visited you several years back. bob king
