Rest in peace Sam.
You will truly be missed
I’ll sure miss my brother. The photo below shows a Christmas when we were so joyful because we both got our Red Rider BB Guns!
I’m proud of Sam for his love of family and work ethic. Sam worked for everything he got. He was willing to share with anyone who needed help or just a friend. Lots of folks will miss his “spirit” that is no longer present.
Fortunately, memories are ours to keep forever.
