Sam, Jr and Grandma Gail helped me raise my children. They took care of them until they started school while I had to work. They have had a huge influence on many , many children over the years. Brad even went on vacations with them. Sam, Jr love to tell the story of Brad with a doll Brad called Baby Jane. We all love Sam, Jr and Grandma Gail for they were like a bonus set of grandparents. May Gail, Ellen, Ann, and Jami found peace and comfort knowing that he was deeply loved.

Some of my earliest memories of our neighbors: "Miss Gail & Sam, Jr." Ellen and I would be playing in the driveway and Mr. Gurganus would drive up from work and she would run to greet him. I still remember the look on his face. He was such a genuinely kind soft-spoken gentleman. I'm sure there's a fine Edenton Street reunion with his parents and friends that went on ahead. Love and my deepest sympathies to the neighbors of my heart.
