I knew Sam from school at Morgan Academy, many years ago. I remember him as kind, smart, athletic, and well-liked. I'm thinking of his family during this sad time. Rest in peace, Sam.

Rest easy my friend. Proud to call you my friend since that day we met, as you and the Family were walking the dog in the Park when there were so many dirt roads.
I pray for all of the Family, as the Lord comforts you during this difficult time.
