"GUESS HOW MUCH WE LOVED YOU, SAM" Way up to the moon and back! Sam, you were a wonderful friend and it was a delight to be in your company. That beautiful smile and your over-brimming enthusiasm for life was infectious. We truly treasure the times we shared with you and with Maralyn, most recently in The Hillside in Hillsborough and in San Bernardino, California, where we all had a meal after having spent a lovely day together. Alan remembers with fondness the days you spent together in Friends School and in the chess club. All the serendipitous encounters around Lisburn, and even on the Cork//Roscoff Ferry, and our times spent in - always fascinating and interesting - conversation will be forever written on our hearts. May your onward journey be one of peace and joy. Until we meet again, Sam. Love and friendship always, Kathryn and Alan Jones, California.
