Dear Sam,
We think of you every day. We remember the fun times and look at photos of you and Lynne. Every time we call Lynne we remember your happy "Hello" when you answered the phone. We visit with Lynne and Bella every time she comes West with Hope. It is unbelievable that two years have gone by so quickly.
Love,
Gayle and Harvey

I know that you are always with us in spirit, and I see you every day in your beautiful grandchildren, who possess so many of your wonderful qualities.

We miss you so much.

Dear Sam.
Everyday I think of you and remember all of the special times we shared. It doesn't seem possible that two years have passed since you left us!
You are still #1 in all categories and in our hearts forever. I will always take care of Lynne for you!
Love your sister, Hope

Dearest Sam,
This weekend you will have been in heaven two years! It seems like just yesterday that you left us! The hurt is still intense for me! There is not a day that goes by that I do not think of you and our wonderful life together! Pictures bring back beautiful memories of our life together! I had it all until the day that you left!
People say that some day we will be together again!
I will always love you with all of my heart and thank you for being the most loving and devoted husband in the universe!
Much love forever,
Lynne??

Big rewards will come his way !
Much love forever,
Lynne

Happy Fathers Day, Pops. It's certainly bittersweet today without you here...

I'm at a Father/Son basketball camp with Daniel, and I've smiled a number of times as I envisioned how much you would have enjoyed being here doing something like this with me...& how many of these same lessons you taught me out in the street or in our driveway. You taught me so many lessons, on and off the court, and they live on today with me and my own family.

I miss you so much - Happy Fathers Day.
June 14, 2014
Dear Sam,
Tomorrow is Father's Day and that brings to mind an A+++++++++Dad, Grandfather and husband-YOU!!!!
You are always in our hearts everyday!
I wish that I could wish you in person a Happy Father's Day but I will say it here. Love to you always from your sister, Hope

Dear Sam,

We think of you on your birthday and wish that we could be together to celebrate. We have wonderful memories of all our times together and look at your photos often. Your grandson Rhys looks so much like you and reminds us of you. Looking forward to Hope and Lynne's visit out in California in a few days.
Love,
Gayle and Harvey

I know today would have been a happy day with you here - you always loved to shower Mom with gifts and affection for Valentines Day, and that we would have had a celebration for your birthday today. Making people smile and laugh was always so important to you, and where I may not have appreciated it as much before, I definitely know how important that is now without having you here to do that for me.

It's so very hard without you here in body, but we know that you're always with us in spirit. I miss you, Pops.

Happy Birthday, and I know that you are smiling as you look down on us today.

Love,

Mike
February 14, 2014
To the love of my life Sam,
Happy Valentine's Day and Happy Birthday tomorrow!
It will never be the same for me!
I miss you more each day and will forever miss my buddy!
Much love always ,
Lynne
February 14, 2014
Dear Sam,
Each and every day brings special memories of you. As your birthday tomorrow approaches, I only wish that you were still here so that we could celebrate together. I still see your handsome smile and hear your warm laugh.
With love always, your sister, Hope

I will love you forever!

Dearest Sam,
It hardly seems possible that a year has passed since we said goodbye. Each and every day, you continue to live in our thoughts and memories. Your love for life continues through your most precious Lynne , children and grandchildren and of course Bella.
Love to you always and always each and every day.
Love, your sister, Hope
November 15, 2013
Pops,

I can't believe it's been a year since you passed. I've never been very spiritual, but I do know you've been with us in spirit on several occasions- I've felt your presence a lot over the past 12 months, and where I've missed you terribly, know that you are looking over us.

I pray about you every day, and work hard to preserve your legacy as a father, husband, teacher, coach, and friend.

Love,

Mike
November 14, 2013
Dearest Sam,
Tomorrow marks one year since you were here with us! It seems like just yesterday that I was smiling at your handsome face and holding your hand at a tender moment!
You were the best, most caring, loving husband who a girl could have! There isn't a day that goes by that I do not think of you!
It has been a difficult year losing the person who always brought a smile to my face and made me feel like your queen!
Until we meet again....
Rest in peace my love,
Lynne
November 14, 2013
Hello Sam! Seems like yesterday we saw you last.
I guess that's because we think of you often, even though it's a year since you left us.

We recently read this poem, by Mary Elizabeth Frye, thought of you and knew that you would have these thoughts for us:

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.

You are remembered, with love, always!

Gayle and Harvey Sarner

Thank you Richard for writing about Sam! He was an amazing, caring husband, father and friend! I miss him terribly even though it is almost one year since his passing! Sam made friends wherever he went and his love and thoughtfulness for others was a rare quality
Thank you for searching for him on Google

I just came across Sam's obituary from a Google search. Sam and I were boyhood friends back in the Bronx on Valentine Avenue; he lived on the 4th floor and I lived on the fifth floor. Sam, Steve Barron and I were close friends. I'm so sorry that Sam is no longer with us. I remember that Sam's father passed away when he was way too young. If anyone wishes to contact me, I'm on Facebook.

Pops:

It was hard not to have you around this past weekend. I know how much you loved 'Race For The Cure' - your commitment and support of Mom's fight always added to this event, and I remember how her face would light up when she would look at you as we would leave the house for the survivor parade, and you were wearing your hat or t-shirt, too.

This year, we wore your name on the back of our shirts 'In Memory of' - you were definitely there in spirit, as you are every day. We can always feel your positive energy around us.
September 27, 2013
To the love of my life, Sam,
I am in Evansville with Mike, Jen and family! We talk of you daily and miss you eternally! Tomorrow we will participate in the Race for the Cure! I will miss your proud face and love as I came across the finish line! I will run in your memory!
Bella misses you too! She definitely has your loving personality!
I miss you more each day!
All my love to the best husband that ever was!

Love your sister, Hope
June 15, 2013
Dear Sam,
It is your first Father's Day in heaven and my first Father's Day without you ! I am hoping that you are celebrating
with our Dads. Words are not adequate to express how much I still love and miss you! I think of you every day !
Much love forever to the best man who ever walked the Earth!
Lynne
May 12, 2013
Dear Sam,
Today is the first Mother's Day without you. I am in Evansville with Bella! It will never be the same without you, the person who loved me most in the world every minute of every day! You are missed more than you will ever know or imagine!
Love forever

Dear Sam,
Miss you forever, my best friend and husband! I think of you every day , and see you sitting by the pool with your feet up reading your Kindle!
I will love you forever and cherish the life that we shared! I wish that you had been here longer to fulfill all of our hopes and dreams!
Love you forever,
Lynne

Pops:

I don't think a day goes by when I'm not reminded of you, and it instantly puts a smile on my face.

I coached Dan's soccer team in a game this afternoon, and as I looked out at him on the field, I thought instantly about how proud you must have felt coaching Jon and I in Tappan T-Shirt League. We were so lucky to share those experiences with you, and I know you are smiling as you look down on us doing the same with our own kids.

I love you, Pops.
April 14, 2013
I miss you more each day in every way ! I dream of all the things that we had planned to do together! You were my hero and the wind beneath my wings. You were always there for me and I was so lucky to be your wife. I will love you forever!
Much much love forever,
Lynne

I wanted to thank all of those who have written such kind words and thoughts about my dad. A day doesn't go by when I don't think of 'Pops', and miss him terribly.

Seeing the profound effect that my father had on so many people makes me feel good about my own aspirations of being the best husband, father, coach and teacher I can be. He was a terrific role model, mentor, father, grandfather and friend to many.

We met Sam & Lynn on a Carribean cruise. The first thing I remember of Sam was his beautiful smile. Love just radiated out of his eyes for his lovely wife. It was so touching to watch them and my thoughts were what a perfect example of the way a man & wife should be. They also were best friends with their sons and grandchildren. I know you are sadly missed, Sam, but you are watching over everyone from above. God Bless!
February 17, 2013
You will be missed. You was a great teacher with a very great smile! I admired your loyalty and dedication to your job and to your students! You will never be forgotten!
February 16, 2013
Thank you all for your kind words about Sam! He was the love of my life because he really cared about everyone! The kids, their families and friends who he made in the South Bronx were very important to him!
Lynne
February 16, 2013
Mr Jacobs was one of a kind. No one was more dedicated to their profession or their kids. I was honored to be his friend and colleague.
February 15, 2013
Thanks, Sam, for taking me under your wing when I first got to 183. You were a very cool teacher, all about the kids.
February 15, 2013

January 01, 2013
Every day we think of Sam and it feels like he will answer the phone when we call Lynne. We have so many wonderful memories and are so sorry that he is still not with us all. He was so brave in conquering his illnesses and he deserved to live a longer life enjoying everyone and giving some much of himself to everyone. Our hearts go out to Lynne, Jon, Mike and families and our thoughts are always with you all.
January 01, 2013
I miss you more each day! Happy New Year in heaven!
You really were the best of the best! I love you always!

Thank you for all of your notes, thoughts and prayers. My father was a very humble man, and I know he would have been very appreciative to know that so many people cared for him and his family.

He lived to make everyone around him happy, and touched so many different lives - as a teacher in the Bronx; as a youth mentor at Camp Hill, the Nanuet Kadima, Sunday School teacher, South Orangetown 'Weekend Warrior', Tappan Zee HS Booster Club, Tappan T-Shirt League, and Orangetown Mighty Midgets; as a loving husband, father, grandfather, uncle, and adopted father and friend to everyone around him.

I know his legacy is secure in my brother (a teacher, coach, and father) and myself (a coach, father, and former teacher). We both run our own summer camp programs, and are actively involved in our children's lives.

We all need to live our lives with the same positive energy and happiness that my father was so committed to spread. His passing leaves a huge void that has left me saddened and grief-stricken, but I need to focus on spreading that same joy and cheer that fulfilled his life. I know he would be distraught if he felt that his loved ones were unhappy, and I need to focus on carrying on his legacy, being happy and positive - that's what he would have wanted.
December 26, 2012
I miss Sam more and more each day!
His smile, kindness and love can not be replaced!
December 14, 2012
Sam was my " brother."
He was always there for everyone, I still hear him say "howdy" wearing his signature broad smile. My sister , Mike, Jon and families were the lights of his life. Lynne and Sam's latest addition, beautiful puppy, Bella, rounded out their loving family. Sam made me feel special by just being Sam.
I will always miss you and hold
You in a special place in my heart yesterday ,today,and tomorrow . Love always ,your sister, Hope
December 13, 2012
Dear Lynne, Michael, Jon and Grandkids,

I'll always remember Sam!
As Sam's brother-in-law, Sam always told me that he thought of me as the brother he never had; but maybe he thought of everyone as a brother or sister - always ready to lend a hand with a large smile on his face and ready to crack a joke or tell a funny story.
He seemed bigger than life and had an enormous capacity of knowledge such that he could easily carry on any conversation - sometimes forever! And don't get him started on sports topics because you might never get another word in edgewise…
He was always there for us when we needed help - for example, when we moved back to New York in the early 70's he helped us move in, or he helped us out with storm damage, or he was there to watch our kids during summers at "Camp Hill". But again, he would do those things for all friends, neighbors or kids, since he was a great friend, loved kids and spent his life as a great husband, father, grandfather, teacher and counselor.
We miss him, and I'm sure that he is missed by all that met and loved him. I'm sure that he is now in a very special better place.

A great asset to me for so many years at Camp Hill. A quiet legend!
November 21, 2012
Forever in my heart and mind!
You were the love of my life and always there for me and everyone else!
Miss you so much!
Love always,
Lynne

Mike,
My family is so sorry to hear about the passing of your father. Our thoughts are with you and your family!
November 18, 2012
Dear Michael and Jon,
My deepest condolences for the loss of your dear father.
Sam was a very proud dad, and rightly so, about his two sons. He and I never missed a soccer game at Tappan Zee H.S.and cheering from beginning to end.
Sam was always a gentle man among gentlemen. The community of South Orangetown is going to miss him. He was alwys ready to lend a hand.
Sam, God Bless You!

Mike, you and your entire family are in our thoughts and prayers. Sorry we did not get a chance to meet your Dad but are certain he was a proud father, grandfather and a great man. Special prayers to your Mother as well.
November 16, 2012
Mike,

I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your father. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this difficult time. May your many good memories of time spent with your dad help comfort you during this time of sadness and grief.
November 16, 2012
Hello Mike.

I am sorry to hear of the passing of your father, and know that words in times like these are completely inadequate to provide much comfort when compared to the pain associated with loss of a loved one. Reading about your father as a husband of 45 years, and a dedicated teacher, coach, and community servant, I get the sense that he was a man of tremendous depth and compassion, and in knowing you that he was a father who loved his children and grand children, to whom he imparted the important life lessons.

May God bless and comfort your family in this time of sadness for your loss as well as in the celebration of a life well lived.

Sincerely.

Rob
November 16, 2012
Lynn, Mike, Jon, Jenn, I was so sorry to hear about Sam. I know how hard this is for you. I just remember Sam's love of life, all of the kids, and the family ( and we were all his family ). I will always remember him around the Holiday's in Raleigh. We were lucky to have him in our lives, and he was lucky to have all of you. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.
