Not sure what to say?

In loving memory of a wonderful person. We will love you and miss you always.

I would like to offer my sincerest condolences to the family and friends of mr samuel wallenberg may the true God grant him peace

I just viewed a documentary featuring Mr. Willenberg's story and felt compelled to say something. What an incredible life and legacy of inner strength and compassion for others. People like him never die, they live on as giants inspiring others...

I just watched a documentary featuring Samuel. I wept, and asked my "why" and "how."

The best I can do is remember him and the millions of others, and teach my little girls about the horror that was the Holocaust and to teach them "never again."

That is all I can say... Never Again!

I just 'met you' on your documentary on television and was deeply touched. Thank you for living your life the way you did and for sharing it with the world. I hope that your statues are in the best place to be appreciated. How wonderful that you passed in Israel. May God hold you in the palm of His loving hand. Shalom.

One of God's chosen... May your legacy live on...

God rest your strong, spirited, courageous soul, Mr. Willenberg. Your legacy lives on! Shalom.
