There are more memories that I can even recall. What I wanted most to share is that Uncle Sam always made me feel important. When we would visit as children, he took the time to talk to us and to listen. I love his smile. My heart goes out to my cousins and their families. My prayers and thoughts are with you all. Miss you Uncle Sam. God Bless! Beci Hoskins

My deepest sympathy to Sam`s children and grandchildren. I have alot of memories to hang on too. Camping and hunting, the big green eyed four point he got, when I was just a kid. Worked with him at Jetway. He was always my favorite uncle. Loved you Sam! You will be missed.
