Not sure what to say?

I had the pleasure of meeting Sam on a few occasions. He was an unbelievably humble, down to earth man. A great man. We will miss you.

Sam ,Danny, David, and Elizabeth......Please accept our families condolences. Just having lost our Dad, we know how hard it is. It leaves an emptiness within you. My best advice is to hold onto the many happy memories and and how lucky you were to have shared those memories with him. Your family has been blessed and I pray that you find comfort going forward.


Nita, so sorry to hear of Sam's passing. He was a great mentor to me. He had been on my mind lately and I pray that your family is at peace with his passing and finds joy at his memory.

Please accept my heartfelt condolences to the Rizzo family and friends for the passing of your dear loved one. Losing a loved one in death is never easy. One day many will have the opportunity to live again. May the hope of everlasting life sustain and comfort you during this difficult time (John 17:3). When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure in your heart and it lives forever. May the wonderful treasures fill your hearts with love and bring you peace.

Nita, my thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult. May God surround you with His tender love and care in the days to come.

Nita, you and Sam made a big impact on my life by just getting to be around you two during our times in the Angus business. What a great trip to the Breeders Cup Races at Santa Anita and Elizbeth joined us for a great day of horse races, I hold that as one of the greatest trips I have ever taken and I will hold your family in my prayers especially during these times.

Dear Nita, Sending much love and sorrow for your loss. Remembering wonderful times with the Deci-Belles! Love, Pat Schweikhardt

Nita and family, I send my condolences. Know you are sincerely loved!

Our sincere condolence to The Rizzo family.
