We wish to offer our condolences to the family. We have known and will always remember Sam. I have known him since our days in high school and enjoyed a short visit when we would meet (lately at McDonalds). His two sons are a testament to their home and the way they were raised. You are all in our thoughts and prayers during this time of grief.
