Our thoughts and prayers are with your family. Sam helped many people in her life. Please continue to get support from family,friends and God. Gain strength by reading in your Bible at Revelation 21:3-4, where it says of the time ,”And he (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more...nor pain be anymore.” Hope you can think of the good memories and gain comfort from Jehovah God ( Psalm 83:18).

I only new Sam for maybe two weeks unfortunately :( I would have loved to have gotten to know her better. The first time I met her she gave me a great big friendly hug and a smile. She had said she wasn't feeling good but she still got up and gave me, a total stranger a hug ? and I thought that was very sweet. The second time I saw her was with her daughter, Jessica again and Sam was staying at Jess's for a week or so and had been there 2-3 days already. She went with Jess in the morning to pick me up for mine and Jess's appointment and before we go to our daily appointment, Jess and I always get coffee from Dunkin Donuts but both Jess and I were broke so Sam INSISTED on getting us our coffee. The other girl, Tasha who rode with us didn't want anything from Dunkin Donuts so Sam made her (and when I say made her she made her not in a bad way but with love) take $3 to get herself something nice so that Tasha wouldn't feel left out. The whole ride with her that day was wonderful. I enjoyed being with her just as much as I love being with her daughter who is very rapidly becoming someone I couldn't imagine not being in my life because she is a rare friend. Sam was a rare friend as well and I really believe that she passed down this special gift to her daughter because a real friend is So hard to come by that it's almost impossible to find them anymore and I found a beautiful friendship with her daughter Jess. Also, while in Sam's presence I noticed how proud she was of Jess and of her grandkids as well. Her grandkids and Jess absolutely adored her right back! She passed away the following weekend. So even though I didn't have a lot of time with her, I Could feel the love for everyone especially her family radiating off of Sam. She was beautiful and she was very special to be able to care for others so openly and without judgment. I absolutely loved the time I did have with her and I'm sure I will hear many stories about her from her daughter, Jess and from her grandkids as well. She will be missed.

I’m so sorry for your recent loss. My deepest condolences to your family. Death of a loved one is never easy to endure, but you don’t have to go through it alone. Continue looking to God and you will always find comfort in him (2 Cor 1:3,4). He will soon destroy the enemy of death (1 Cor 15:26), and He will soon return our loved ones to us through the resurrection (John 5:28,29). Please visit and search “When Someone You Love Dies”, it helped me through some difficult times and I hope you can find comfort in it also.
