Loved Sam and his bravery to come to yoga class as the only man.He was smart and witty. Charming but tough. My deepest sympathies to you Joan and your beautiful family

Our condolences to the family. My boys at age 12 stated a lawn service and were hired by the Bartletts who helped them understand responsibility and work well done. However, our funniest memory is of a litter of puppies their dog had and this female puppy was snuck home as a male as their dad only wanted male beagles (and this wasn't even a beagle). Basil was a treasured member of our family and Sam and Joan helped 4 children become very responsible, admirable adults. Thank you, Sandy Enos

I've known Sam and his lovely family since 1976. I was a student in Ottawa, coming from Holland, I became their lodger and they welcomed me into their family. It made all the difference for me. We became friends, and still are. My thoughts are with them all and I send them my love. Elsa Fischer, Bern, Switzerland

Bob and I knew Sam, Joan and family for only a short time. However, we knew immediately that we wished for more time for Sam was and the family is uniquely wonderful. We will miss you, Sam, we already do!

I had only known Sam a few years as volunteers at Jordan Hospital (BID-Plymouth). He was a wise old sage with lots and lots of life stories about his consulate days in foreign countries and of particular interest to me his mis-adventures with the Plymouth Plantation Hornblower boys. RIP Sam you led a full and meaningful life,

My condolences to the Bartlett family on the passing of Sam. I had the honor &
Pleasure of knowing him & caring for him at Newfield House; he was such a gentleman. Hoping all the wonderful memories help carry you in the difficult days ahead.
