Dear Marlene and Family -

My wife Rita and I would like to convey our deepest sympathy to the entire family. I knew Sam for 40 years or more though our shared loves, numismatics and Israel. He was one of true giants in our field and was always willing to share his knowledge. Early in my career he unwittingly let me know that numismatics was a 24 hour 365 days a year "calling" when he called me one early Thanksgiving morning to discuss a group of banknotes. I'm very sorry for your loss.

It was sad to learn that my friend Sam Halperin has passed away. I worked with Sam on education legislation in the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare during the Johnson Administration in the 1960's. Through the years, the seminars and papers that Sam wrote and supported were excellent contributions to the development and understanding of education and youth policy issues. In recent years, my wife Carol and I enjoyed seeing and talking with Sam and his wife Marlene when we met them at many Shakespeare Theatre plays. With appreciation for the wonderful life he lived, our sympathies are extended to Sam's family.

Dear Marlene and Family,
We are thinking of all of you in the midst of your loss. We have such wonderful memories of Sam from these past thirty-some years we have known him. The last time we were together was about two years ago for a party after a concert. He was so loving, generous, encouraging. We remember him with great fondness.
Sending love and prayers, Janice and Adel Sanchez

To say I will miss him so understates the scale of what has happened that it mocks the words of their meaning. He took me on late in his life, took me on as an apprentice, understudy, acolyte. He became my guide, my liege, in all matters Israeli and Jewish, and then in all matters of life itself. We met regularly at a vacuous inexpensive carry-out on M Street, each of us eating just a few ounces, as though we were in the Negev, he my Abraham, I his Isaac. And slowly, without expectation or reward, he mentored me, told me gently of what to take on and what not to. Life, ever querulous, simmered and then settled down, so that when I had to leave the city, for good, he said goodbye without ever really saying so, but knowing that he had vested within me the courage to carry on without him.

Dear Marlene and Family, words cannot express how I felt hearing the news of Sam's passing. We here at ARE will always remember his spirit and his dedication to this agency. On a personal note it was Sam who first made me feel welcomed in my new position as President and CEO of this agency. I was always able to call on him and he gave me guidance, but even more than that he let me know that I was not alone. We will truly miss him and know that we are here for the family if there ever a need. Bless you all and Sam's spirit surrounds us all.

I worked with Sam in 1966 and 1967. He was a brilliant political strategist and a fine mentor to me. I am grateful for his influence on my life I am most sorry to learn of his death. It as premature from my standpoint I would like his wife and children to know that few others taught me as much regarding Washington DC, politics or education policy.
