If you didn’t know our Sam, then let me tell you how wonderful this man was and will always be in our hearts. Always against grain, unapologetically unconventional, and we wouldn’t want it any other way! He made us lucky few smile.

A constant giver and unselfish in many ways. That man loved unconditionally! His years working in corrections and as King County police, I watched in awe as he never once judged a man that had less or was seemingly dismissed by society. He treated everyone with the respect they deserved- eye to eye, a hand shake, and an offer to help. Such a rare gem he was!

A father never sacrificed so much over the years and loved a daughter like he did. Such love in his eyes. Even at his end, in his confusion and sleepless blur, his heartfelt thoughts were meant to protect her. No one will fully understand his untimely end, shocking and unfair in every way.

I do know his love was true.

That Hat wearing, smiling man in black with the toothy grin; tattoos on his Native American skin. We will always remember you strong and bright.

You left your mark my dearest friend!

Because of you Sam, I hope we remember that kindness and the respect for all will never die.

It feels like I’ve know you forever, and in realty it’s only been 9 months since our first conversation. We spent countless hours chatting. Conversations that touched my heart me in more ways then you will ever know. I will forever remember your last text to me. It was the sweetest most heart felt message I think I’ve ever received. Rest peaceful you sweet and lovely man! In love and friendship, always in my heart. Hugs!

My Dear Sammie,

May you Rest In Peace, may you find your contagious smile, and may your beautiful daughter, Bella, always remember how very much you love her. I pray that your family walk by faith, not by sight, because only God knows the path they’re destined for. I pray that they find comforts in their most precious memories of you, and that they’re not overshadow by your illness and untimely demise. Easier said than done, but I pray in His name because I need the reminders as well. I will always admire you, Sammie.

With Love...
