I found out today that Sam had died several months ago. My husband and I were customers for many years. Sam was always a kind and considerate business owner. He will be missed. Prayers for his family and friends.

We had lots of fun playing and teaching Sam how to play Pennies from Heaven and sharing meals at the local community bank. We will always remember the laughs and your smile.
