Violet and Family,
We are heartbroken over the loss of Sam. As you know, I took a special fondness to him back in 2001 over a simple phone call. We connected instantly. He has been a huge part of our life on a daily basis. Exchanging emails, phone calls, and visits. Each day, I would capture the beauty of our place and send him photos. We laughed, I cried, we listened, we loved and we enjoyed each and every moment. He had a special
Place in my heart and he knew it because I told him every single time. He was brilliant, knowledgeable, an artisan, a craftsman, but best of all, he was my best friend. We are honored to lay him to rest here on the farm. Thank you for sharing this wonderful man with us. He is forever in my heart. Until we meet again Sam., “The best journey takes you home”. Love and sincere condolences to all.
