Sam came into my life when I most needed someone that
cared for me. He gave me a job, let me stay in the Fenwick trailer many times, introduced me to Chinese food, allowed
me freedom at work to try different things, and he put up with my crap (sorry). He was one of the few people that I
loved and admired. After the Hunt Corp. I probably drove past his house a hundred times wanting to stop in for a visit
but I just never did. People that know me know that I can be weird that way. I am most sorry that I never told
him how much he meant to me. Love to Regina, Diana, Missy, and Robert.
