My husband, Charles Hammer, worked with Sam at the railroad for over 40 years. Such good memories they had! After Charles passed away in 2000,Sam and Barbara proved to be true friends. In addition, it was always a pleasure to vote at New Harvest Park because Sam was always there with a ready smile and another hilarious memory of working with Charles.
