"The first time I met Sam there was four feet of snow in our driveway and he came over to give me his snow blower to use I did not even know him until we met again at a later time. that does go to show us all what a wonderful man he really was. my wife Julie and I will miss him"
"My sincerest of condolences to the Shananaquet Family.
I had only been able to meet Sam on one occasion when I was a teen. He was such a wonderfully happy person that shared this joy with all those in the room.
May the joy and happiness still live in our hearts whenever our thoughts think of Sam."
"It seemed like I knew Sam better than I did, but that was because he always made everybody around him happy. He really did have a Beautiful Smile. Sam made this world a better place, just by living and spreading his joy....Miss you Sam"
"Sam was simply the best! his attitude towards life was so Positive and his laughter and heart warming personality was so nice to be around, he was so uplifting! Sam was like a brother to me, we had a lot of memories! The dream catcher Sam made for our wedding is still hanging on the wall, and it is beautiful! Such Talent! Our prayers and thoughts go out to the whole family. God Bless you."
