Oh how very, very sad I am but oh how the Angels are cheering that Sam has come to join them with Amy & Doug leading the way. You are blessed to have such special and wonderful angels watching over you though you may not feel that way right now. He was certainly one of God's beloved servants. May the Peace of Christ sustain you during this extremely difficult transition.
