  1. Taken way too soon. May you Rest In Peace Sam. You are no longer in pain. GOD BLESS YOU.....
    So Sincerely, Alice

  2. I didn't know Sam very well at all. We met and became Facebook friends because of Denise. We had a few conversations on the chat, mostly about Zinga Poker :) I did get the chance to finally meet my Poker buddy during an unfortunate circumstance, Denise's sister Barb's Funeral. His health at that time was not good but he still came with Denise to support her during her time of greiving. Like I said before, I didn't know Sam very well, but it was obvious to me that he loved his family. Faith, Family and Friends..that's what it's all about. RIP Sam, you'll be missed
