Linda and I were sadden to hear of your passing, Sam. In the short time we knew you, we found in you a good friend and neighbor. We will never forget that voice of yours. You will be missed. Diane, grieving is a natural part of our sojourn here on earth. We grieve with you. Be aware that we are here if you ever need anything. Rodney & Linda Haymore Reply to this comment
