I didn’t know your husband/dad very well but I always enjoyed you “kids” and your mom. I have good memories from our childhood of us kids and wonder what paths each has chosen, as adults. May God give you comfort at this time.

Sad to lose Sam. He was a good man. We enjoyed the short time we had with him playing cards and talking.
