To the Acheson Family, I just learned of Sam's passing. I was cutting his hair back in 1980 when I found out Sam's mom and my grandmother "Clara Elizabeth Cox-(Butler) were first cousins. I am so happy you got to live a good long life. I will miss your smile and stories, Dwain Baker.......

Depend on Him at all times...before Him pour out the pain within.
God, is a refuge for us. (Ps. 62:8)

What a wonderful gift Sam was to the world. His memorial service spoke so clearly as to what an amazing man he was and how much he was loved. I remember all those hay rides and bonfires as the youth in West Des Moines Christian. He truly did love all children, and his whole family reflects that love still. He has left a spectacular legacy for us all.

Keith and Kent, I have been thinking of you a lot this week since reading your father's obituary in the DM Register. Your parents were so very hospitable to me when I was your guest in their home during our Simpson College days -- some of the nicest people I've ever met. My sincere condolences to you at this time.
