I knew Sam as one of the older brothers of Shelia, my high school classmate. I remember his determined journey over the years of working in law enforcement, the beauty industry, and his calling to the ministry. My heart aches for his family, as they have had many losses over the past few years: two brothers, Godwin and Eugene; and a sister, Cynthia. I offer my sincerest condolences to the entire family on this great loss.
