    My thoughts, prayers, and much love go to Terry, Amanda and all her family. Sam was truly a beautiful soul; always smiling and taking care of others. I’d love getting tomatoes and cucumbers from her garden, beauty products she would surprise you with, food so you didn’t go hungry at work (I’ll always think of you when I boil eggs especially. Who had time to pack a lunch? Or eat? Everyone’s quick fix snack at the spa). She kept me sane and laughing through some of the most ridiculous and frustrating times. My heart is in pieces in her passing and I will more than cherish all the time I got to spend with her. Miss you Sammy! I will continue to think of you often. I can still hear your contagious laughter in my head. Nolan snuggles the monkey plushy every night… now I do too Xoxo Rest in peace.
