  • Anna, Christina, Theresa and Steven,
    Richie and I cannot express our saddness on Sam’s passing. For Richie he was loved like a brother. I also loved him and respected him highly. Since we put the house up in Maine, everytime there was a problem we had to deal with it would always be “ask Sam he’ll know what to do.” He always was right. I could go on and on. My boys and grandchildren also respected him. To all of us Sam always knew what to do. We will miss him so very very much. We pray for him that he will rest in peace. We are thinking of all of you that our prayers help you get thru this very sad time.
    Love Nancy and Richie
