Dear Linda,
It's been years since elementary school get-togethers with our boys. Those were fun times that should always be treasured. Sam was so athletic and always on the go. I am so very sorry.

I'm sorry for your loss. I met Sam through work at the mall in Danbury and became friends with him. We hung out and I took him out a few times to meet some friends of mine. We shared some good times, even though they were few. He always made me laugh and smile and I was utterly shocked when i heard the news. I now regret not seeing him more and not being able to say goodbye before I left. God Bless your family and I know hes watching over us and having fun in the sky

Sincerely, Tatiana

Dear Marino Family,
I am so sorry to hear about your loss. Sam was a wonderful friend and a fearless athlete. I will miss listening to his laughter and seeing smile as he flew down the slopes, or flipped through the air, on his snowboard. I will always remember our time together on the diving team as well, and I hope that you too will find peace in your memories of him.

To Sam's family...I am so deeply sorry for your loss.
I had the pleasure of working with Sam several years ago. I found him to be funny, bright,and big hearted. He had the irreverence of youth which was charming.He was a fine young man. I will always remember the sparkle in his eye and the grin that was all Sam.

May you all find peace and comfort in your memories

Dearest Sophie,
My heart aches for the profound loss and suffering which you and your family now experience. I feel powerless to offer any words of comfort which might attempt to ease your pain and grief...I am not sure that is possible.
Knowing how strong your Faith is...the the poem, Footprints in the Sand comes to my mind..
Where were you Lord when I needed you most? why were your footprints not next to mine? the Lord replied, the footprints you saw were mine, ...I was carrying you on my shoulders.
May your strong faith and the love of family and friends provide all of you some peace and comfort during this very difficult time.
Sophie, my sincere and heartfelt sympathy to you and your family on the loss of Sam.
Your friend, Jamie

My Dearest Aunt Sophie, Michele, Val, Tammy, Lori, and their families.

How I wish I could take away the pain of losing Sammy. This is the most tragic loss a family could possibly endure. He was a precious gift from God. I pray that Our Heavenly Father will give all of you the strength to cope somehow. I will always remember his smile and how much he loved his family. He will greatly be missed by so many. Hold onto to one another for comfort and support. I will always be here for you if you should ever need me.

I love you all very much,

Your Neice and Cousin,

Dear Mike, Lin, Julie and her family, Mike and his,

Words can not express how I feel, because there are none. The tragic loss of Sammy is devastating. Together as a loving family you will somehow get through this sad time in your lives. Losing a son and brother is the most difficult thing anyone could possibly endure. My heart is breaking for all of you.I am praying that God will bless you with strength to be able to cope somehow. Sammy was such a wonderful person. I will always remember how handsome, polite and respectful he was. He will truely be missed. As hard as this is to say, but he is now at peace with his Grandpa Sam. Please know how much I love all of you.

Love Your Cousins,
Jan, Dave, and Justin

Mike, Linda, Julie & Mike,
There are no words to describe the feeling you have when you lose a child. It is the hardest thing anyone could ever endure. Keith and I want to send you our love. We are keeping you in our hearts and prayers.

It is so hard to hear people tell you Sam is in a better place and all you want to say as a response is the best place for him is with his parents and family. Hold on to Sam with your whole hearts. He will always be with you.

With the deepsest of sympathy and love,
Your Cousins,

Lynn & Mike: There are no words to express the profound sadness in my heart over the loss of your son Sam. He was many things to many people. I will always remember his easygoing nature, the laugh, the smile; how I would cringe watching him and Damian on their bikes! He will live on in all of our hearts. I wish you peace.

This is the hardest thing you and all of us can go through, The loss of Sammy, is making us feel, the most empty feeling a family could feel. He was the most wonderful, Son, Brother, Nephew, Cousin and Friend anyone could ask for. what I will remember most about him is his longing to live life to the fullest, bking, boarding, anything that was dangerous for us he would try and loved it, the last few years for tough for Sam but he loved his family so much and he will never be forgotten by anyone who new hiim, how could he everyone loved Sam. Now his is with Grandpa Sam and he took his hand to his home with all his loved family who have passed before him. may you RIP my beautiful Nephew you will be missed terribly..
Love Aunt Lori Uncle Hugh, Daniel and Kevin.
