I had to share his 66 birthday photo. I made him a cake with the pride flag..what a pain that was with all the colours lol. He cried, he couldn’t believe for the first time he ever had someone do that for him. I wanted him to know I was proud of who he was ,he taught me allot about loving a person for who they are ! Sam was definitely one of a kind.
I would like to send ‘HUGS’ to all his sisters! I cannot thank you enough for letting me be a big part in his life. Sam was always so full of life. Stubborn at times but was always willing to listen. He enjoyed making people laugh and sharing stories. It was a blessing for me to get to know the man he was, his fears, his joys and the love of his life (Gerry). The Energy of a person is a amazing thing and to share there life and there last moment is a absolute gift. Thank you Sam, My life will be forever changed!
I do Miss you very much Sam. I trust you are resting in peace. I will see you again my beautiful friend! .Lots of love now and always. XO
