I haven't seen you in a few years. The last time that I saw you was at a beauty shop in Hammond and we talked for a while like we had just graduated high school. ( Like years hadn't passed) I want you to know that I am very sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to you and your family. May the Lord be with you at this time and help you to heal.

Sam was a "one of a kind" cousin that I will never forget. Although he wanted others to think he was such a tough character, he knew he could melt my heart when he would respond, "I love you too, Cuz".
"Sam, I will forever cherish my Mimosa trees you gave me and will be reminded of you as I watch them grow and wait to see their 'soft' blooms. See you later, Son!"
