August 31, 2018 "I miss Sam. He is a full blown HERO. My dad died of ALS in 1981. It is brutal. He stayed brave to the end. He was 45. I love every single piece of work that Mr. Shephard did. He was amazing. AND soooooo HANDSOME. God hold Sam safely. He is missed. I hope that he has found my son, Kris in heaven and my soul " Sista" Elaine who I just lost to brain cancer. I LOVE all of you and thank you for sharing Sam with all of us.

January 31, 2018 "Thank you Sam for sharing your talented legacy, your sincerest deep heart, you are a blessed gift to all. You were a man of few words in Baby Boom, my first experience of you as an actor, your lasting darling expressions left many a lady falling for you in love. Then in Frances, we fell in love again with you and your darling partner in life. The experience of love is the sharing of talents empowering others to be one world as it needs to be and the errors of our ways, which we all have and they are many, need to be forgiven. We forgive you in abandoning us too soon. I speak for many, we will miss and pray your family has healed and all will carry this lasting impression you have endeared to us all.
