Sam was a hard working man. He set a goal and strived for it, even when it took a lot of work and patience. His obituary reminded me how he said, " I just want a hamburger and a cup of coffee." Melba, you were a great support for him. May God comfort you during this difficult time.

Melba,
Thinking of you and your family during this loss of Sam. I always remember him in his Police Uniform coming to the office to take you to Lunch. Good memories of him always smiling.

Melba,
I am so sorry for your loss. I know you will all miss him greatly. He was so nice to me and I always enjoyed visiting with him at the lake parties - he could always make me laugh. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
