    My thoughts and prayers are with Sam's family and friends. May his memory be a blessing. Sam and I were friends in high school and college. He had a quick wit and always had a smile on his face. I will never forget him and what a Light he was to me back in those years.

    Sam was a schoolmate at Ridgeview. His smile and wit was what I remember most. It truly sounds like he had a well lived life and made a difference in the too short time that he was here. My heart goes out to his family and friends.

    So sorry to hear about Sam - our love to all of you -- Unfortunately we will not be able to be there Sunday but our thoughts are certainly with you. Frances and Herbert
