      Oh I am so sorry to hear about Sam. He was my neighbor for 10 years one of the best never worried about much cause Sam always let me know if anything was going on. He was also a good friend to talk to. Sam even stopped at my house not long ago to see how I was doing and tell me how he was doing. I will surely miss Sam sitting outside in the yard waving when I went by. Condolences to Charlotte and his family. I am so sorry to hear this
