What do I say about a man that treated me like one of his own for most of my life. He and my husband Rick formed an unshakeable bond over the years they worked together. Both of them thought they were right about everything all the time which lead to some lively arguments. Sam had a gruff exterior but if you took the time to get to know him, he had a heart of gold. I am so happy that I had him in my life and will miss him terribly. My thoughts and prayers go out to Jane as I know she truly loved this man.
