When I was young, my grandma (Marie) would take me over to Sam's house while she visited with him and his family. I'll always remember him as one of the smartest, genuinely kind folks I'll ever meet and have the privilege of being related to. May the Lord comfort the entire family in this time of sorrow with the knowledge of Sam's entry into Paradise. May the Lord also comfort the family with the promise of seeing Sam again (in a renewed body!) if we also trust in the saving power of Jesus Christ.
