Sue it was with great sadness when Trish told me of Sams passing, more shock and disbelief. Memories of meeting you both in Veitnam and your wonderful 50th I could see the love in your family. My deepest condolences.

Redwood School days... Sam was a great supporter of the school in so many ways. A ready smile, a laugh, a joke or two and so much practical help. One out of the box! Sue, Jessie and Ben our thoughts and prayers are with you in particular. Thanks Sam, much richer for knowing you!
