"Sam" was a lovely man I knew in childhood. Our families were/are great friends since 1953. Sam became my guitar teacher at a very early age. While I wasn't a particularly good student, and was there primarily to learn to play pop music, Sam lovingly taught me to appreciate classical guitar. Something I take with me today. Thank you. Rest in Peace Sam.

Sam was the best older brother; he taught us all to read, protected us, build tree forts, organized games, was in the highest level in the Catholic Church as an altar boy. We will all miss him
