  1. Dear Family, Sam has been a wonderful friend to me and my family especially in our early years when he and Beverly lived in Clarksville. My husband and I shared many good memories together with them .

    He was a fine person and I know that you will miss him. I believe that he is with your mom now and suffering is over. May God bless you now and in the coming days.

  3. Sam,
    Sorry to hear of your father’s death. I note from his picture a definite family resemblance. Your dad can no doubt he proud of the outstanding son he brought into this world. Take care. WTM

    PS The funeral home should offer the stars and bars as an optional image! (I would have used it.)
