  • Dear Kathleen, John and Robyn, David and Christina, 
    You are all in my heart and in my prayers. Sam was very special to me and to all that knew him. Everyone who lives in a house he built or looks at a piece of art or furniture he crafted is all the more enriched by his being in the world. I will think of him especially when I am in nature. May you find comfort in your memories. Love,

  • Dear Mrs. Horn, Once upon a time, long ago, in a land called Westwood - we walked to and from school, got lost in the tall sagebrush across from your house, ate wild muscadines and blackberries, and even left the door unlocked sometimes. We tried not to crash the sleds into your front wall or get caught having quail egg fights. However, not getting caught was difficult since, even though we might not have known it, someone's Mom was watching out for us all of the time. Little did we know what an innocent and simple time we were living in. Today's world turned out far different than any of us expected or were prepared for. I ran into Merle Kirkland yesterday and she told me of Sam's death. I lost track of Sam, and had no idea that he lived just down the road from me here in Ferndale. Please accept my sincere condolences and prayers for you and your family. Peace be with you.
