    I am so sorry to hear of Sam’s passing. I worked with Sam and Ian, but knew Paul from the old airline days. Sam was always such a warm, generous and very funny gal. We had some memorable times… She will missed. I remember reading this and thinking it is so appropriate…. It’s not the years in the Life, but rather the Life in the years. Sam loved all her trips to Hawaii and was always looking forward to the next one… may she be swimming with the turtles now…
