The moment I met Sam, I felt an instant connection to her - I even remember us both being on the hunt for a new apartment in KC and seriously considering being roommates, even though we had just met. I'm so grateful that a friend of ours from UMKC introduced us. I was going through a rough breakup and you magically appeared and selflessly supported me through it. I'll forever cherish memories of the best camping trip to the Rockies, to taking an introductory pottery class, and the countless girls' nights spent together.

I'll always wish I would have told her just how much she meant to me, but now, all I can do is hope she knew.

I love and miss you, Sam.

Sam and I met as colleagues at the firm. Everyday she made it her mission to annoy me in some shape or form, but in reality she made me laugh and smile - that was her real mission. Our friendship was effortless. She was genuine, full of personality and most importantly full of so much potential. My sweet Sam, it was only a few days ago that we were making plans to see eachother again. I will cherish our memories and forever remember your beautiful blue eyes and smile. You are incredibly missed and loved. Be at peace my friend, until we meet again.

Sam and I, low key, first met each other at our first communion. Our friendship was really forged in high school, though. Sam asked me in our freshman year of high school to walk with her at graduation. I told her yes. Despite not being as close, our senior year she still wanted to walk with me. Sam was such a genuine, caring, and reliable friend. I had so many fun times with her. The memories I have are so beautiful. From the trip we took to LA, to traveling to OH with my family, to the weekend I spent at the lake with you and your grandparents, it was always a great time when we were together. I’ll forever cherish her friendship because she was the kind of friend you wouldn’t see for a while, but when we got back together, it was like we’d never been separated. I love you, Sam. Thanks for being such a great friend.

I’ve been looking back at photos of us from middle school and high school with our friends but this memory is my favorite. Sam helped me during one of my hardest times as an adult and I am so thankful for that. She helped me regain my happiness and confidence, and she truly was an amazing friend. My heart is with her and her family through this difficult time. I miss you, Sam. ❤️

Sam was wonderful in so many ways, but more than anything, I admired her authenticity. She was fun, thoughtful and passionate, and on countless occasions she’d challenge me to think differently. I am so sad that the world has lost such a beautiful human. My thoughts are with her loved ones.
