Not sure what to say?

I feel very sad inside to know that a former student has left this world. I worked in New Berlin with Sam's mom. I vividly remember all three girls. They attended the elementary school where I was the librarian. My condolences go out to all families involved.

I've never meet Sam in real like but instead knew her through a Facebook mommy group. She has always been so positive, no matter what life threw at her. She always had something positive to say to everyone and brought so much joy and smiles to everyone who came into contact with her. I will always remember the huge smaile that she always had in all her photos and all the kind words that she had for everyone. We will miss you, Sam.

My deepest condolences to the family for the loss of your dear one.
Please take comfort from your fond memories and the
promise found at Isaiah 33:25.

Sam was on the New Berlin Swim Team when my daughters, Kathryn & Lisa Riewer were on the Team. Our Prayers & hearts go out to her whole family at this sad time.

Sam was a force of nature. I never imagined after she received her diagnosis that she wouldn't emerge victorious from her battle. She and I had beach plans that we never got to fulfill. I miss our almost daily chats and her never-flagging optimism. My heart hurts for the boys and her absence from their lives. I have gone through each day of the past week thinking to myself, "how can I spread kindness in Sam's honor". You will be forever missed Sam, your legacy of love,...

Sorry for your loss. May the God who "binds up the brokenhearted" and "comforts all who mourn" strengthen your family during this difficult time (Isaiah 61:1,2)

Although I never met Sam in person, we were a part of an online Mommy group. Her love for life and her family was obvious and she will be greatly missed.

I am proud to be able to say that I knew Sam and was one of her village of friends. We never met in person, having met in a Facebook group for Mom's who were pregnant at the same time in 2015. Sam was such a joy to have as a part of our close knit group. The women who are a part of this group have now been friends for over four years and we are all better people having known Sam. We are forever grateful to have had her in our lives. May she Rest In Peace. ❤

Sam was part of my mommy group. Sam has always stood out to me in the group. She was such a positive person. She took the time to always respond when I posted a question or proud moment. Even after her diagnosis when she could have been down and out or only concerned with herself she still was there to lift people up or follow up with a group members latest question or post.

I really wish she knew how much I admired her bravery and strength through all this. Sam has made an...
