Growing up with Sam next door leaves me with many happy memories. When the Graham family first moved in, little Sammy Jr came right over and knocked on our door to introduce himself, we quickly became friends. He offered many kind words when they were needed the most, and just always seemed to be there, a comforting presence. Over the years we grew apart, but we never failed to share a smile or a laugh when we’d see each other. Sammy’s warm smile and goofy sense of humour will never be forgotten by our family. Our condolences go to anyone who’s lives Sammy touched. To Sam and Bridgette, we thank you for bringing such a beautiful person into this world, taken far too soon.

Sam was on of my life long best friends, we have so many memories together. He stuck by my side when many wouldn’t. He was one of the kindest people i knew, he had such a gentle heart. One of my favourite memories was on our grade 8 graduation, he took my high heels and tried to run away in them in front of everyone. Obviously cracking us all up. He would always do anything to put a smile on our faces. I would do anything to see you again Sammy. My deepest condolences to the family, fly high Sam i’ll love you forever.

Sam was a very kind soul, and knew how to make anyone smile. I only attended elementary school with him at pinewood, but the time I spent with him were always filled with laughs and fun. He was a great friend to have. My condolences for his family and friends, he was such a great person to be around. It’s so sad to see him go so early.
