Sam Good was a remarkable man who overcame blindness through the love and kindness he shared with all who knew him. He and my mother Nell shared a great friendship which made her life far better. Barbara and I will always remember Sam, knowing him and enjoying his call on holidays and birthdays. He will be missed.
May God bless and be with his family.
