Not sure what to say?

Sam worked with my father at Coca Cola for many years. I had the privilege of speaking with him only a few times, but from those short conversations I know that the earth is a lesser place without him, and it's heaven's gained. My sympathies for your loss.

I had the pleasure of working with Sam for several years at Coca-Cola. He was always in a great mood and ready to start the day with a few jokes and stories to share. I left that job in '08 and he has still managed to pop into mind frequently. He was a wonderful man who will be missed and certainly not forgotten.

Sam was one of our favorite "customers" at Coors. We loved his stories. Rest in Peace Dear Sam.

Sam was a good friend of my parents and our family, he and Delia attended all of our special events like weddings and 3 of my parents anniversaries. We will all miss him. Our condolences to the family. May you rest in heavenly peace.
