Not sure what to say?

What a sweet man! I had the honor of knowing Sam through Jessie and the Putt family. A privilege to Share some holidays and beach time. I will miss his smile, and gentle giant presence that shined with love and respect for his family around him!

Sam was loyal to VMI and especially to his beloved class of 51. I had not realized that both of our fathers served in WWII before VMI. I know you miss him. In time, may all of your grief be replaced with warm memories. I know he was proud of you, Cynthia! God bless you all.

People like Alden come around once in a lifetime. You a fortunate and better person in knowing him. He will be greatly missed.
