So Sorry for your loss, Michelle. I was shocked to hear the news. Sam will be remembered for the wonderful, quiet, funny, and very patient person he was. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you need anything.

Michelle, Rosemary and family -- I am so sorry for your loss on the loss of Sam. Sam was a great guy. I have many fond memories of him when he was younger. He was in the same class as my brother, Peanut, and I was in the same class as his sister, Rosemary, so we saw each other a good bit while growing up. I had always had fun talking to and going to the occasional Pirate game with Sam a long time ago. He was always so quiet, but he could get rowdy during a game. I know he will be missed. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
