I was so sorry to learn of Sam's passing. She worked at the CSB where I work and she was always a pleasant and hardworking individual who was always talking about her kids and precious grandbabies and her husband Mike. Our loss is heaven's gain. May God bless you all and comfort you in the days ahead.
