I met Sam in 6th grade at Bank Street school and hung out with him and the others from the Walnut/Elmer Street neighborhood. Sam was one of the funniest guys I ever met - he made me laugh every time I talked with him. He is a perfect example of the old saying 'don't judge a book by its cover'. To some people he may look rough and tough on the outside with his long hair and tattoos but on the inside he was a softie with a heart of gold. His passing truly breaks my heart. Rest in peace my friend. Love you.
