Sambo, I know you were glad to see your daddy, your mama, Patricia and Harley. Even though its been awhile since we were together I've thought of you often. You have always been more than just a cousin and I cherish the many good times we had, especially the weeks we spent at Pap and Big Granny's during the summer. Aurey, Wendi, Jason, Travis, and Tara, I am sorry Sammy is no longer with you physically, but, he will always live in your hearts and minds and through you and your children. Elizabeth and I love you guys.
