December 28, 2016 "Sammy was a partner with my father and other Doctors in three DR owned hospitals in OC in the 1970's. He also 'taught' me to dive at 12. I had zero talent. Once after diving to Sammy's direction and belly flopping, I took my time coming up. My face met his distraught face and his response ...' thank God, I wasn't sure you were coming back up!' A lovely man. I remember Roz fondly and the kids. My heart felt condolences but what a life well lived!
