Our family has been truly blessed to have known Sam. Sam was a kind and gracious gentleman with a heart filled with compassion. He will be missed, but never forgotten! Patrick said Sam will always be in his heart! Take comfort in knowing that Sam is now absent from the body, but present with the Lord. Sam is in a much better place now!
May God Bless and comfort you Loella and the rest of the Earlywine family!
Matt, Debbie and Patrick Thomas (Georgetown, Ohio)
