Sammie, You will be greatly missed. Thank you for all the lessons in
life that you gave me. You taught me to be generous even though you
only have a little yourself, you taught me that others can be family
even though they are not born to the same parents. You taught me
love is so big that it can forgive and keep growing. You gave me your
trust. You listened to me when I needed you to do so. And, when I ask
you to do something, you did it because you trusted. I will miss you,
Sammie, but I know I will see you again. One day, when I cross over, I
know your hands will be reaching for me to help me find my way, to
let me feel safe, and to know it is all going to be ok. I will miss you.

Sammie was a roommate of my son, Paul, until Paul passed away in
December of 2018. Paul had lived with Sammie for ten years. I am
grateful for the kindness Sam always showed my son. They got
along well and Sammie was very patient and protective of Paul,
which I am grateful for. He was a good and generous man who
helped to keep my son safe. In turn, I am certain that my non-verbal
son loved Sammie and I know that Paul trusted him. I'm very sorry for
you loss and pray that Sammie rests in peace.
From: Jeane, Paul's mom
