There is not a doubt that my Uncle Sammie's soul was welcomed into heaven with a wave and a smile. How fortunate I have been to have my Aunt Helen and my Uncle Sammy. I liked them both and I loved them both as well. Throughout my entire life they repeatedly showed me and told me that they loved me. It doesn't get much warmer that this. They were heavenly blessed to have found each other. They were each others best friends throughout their lives. I have too many memories with my uncle to post here however, the vivid memory that will always be paramount was in his gentle way he lived his life and the soft way he treated people. Thank you Uncle Sammie for all of the many things you taught me and for letting me win arm wrestling EVERY time.
