    Miss Bea and family: I’m so sorry for your loss. Sam was a wonderful, kind man with a beautiful singing voice.. Phillip and I always enjoyed listening to his distinctive voice at church. Another angel has joined the Lord’s choir. Praying for you and your family.

    Bea, just learned of Sam’s passing. I am so sorry, but you can be thankful for the many wonderful years you had together.
    We did not see much of each other after you moved to Greenbriar, but we kept in close touch via e-mail. Will miss our contacts, but hope you will continue to contact me.
    Out thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
