  2. My beautiful husband, I miss you so much and I love you so very much. You were taken too soon, but I know God needed you more. I will always have you in my thoughts, my heart and soul. I will never forget you. You are my one and only love and my soulmate. I miss your playfulness, your singing and hearing you play your music. You made sure I was taken care of. You were a wonderful husband friend and I know you loved me. My sweetheart I will see you one day and we’ll be together again. I will never remarry because no one can take your place. I love you my handsome husband.

  3. Sam was my best friend for over 20 years. He never said no when I needed his help and took care of my family when I was traveling. We used to spend a lot of time playing pool and darts in the coolest game room that we built together. There was not a room in my home that he did not work on at some point and a couple he slept in when he needed a place to crash. I will miss him more than I can say, but I know that if there is a heaven, Sam is there making new friends with everyone he meets. It gives me comfort to know that he is now taking care of my wife and his sweet mama Baiza. Rest in peace old friend.

  4. Truly one-of-a-kind. I will miss you, brother. You were always there willing to take care of me and my family. You were such a great guy.

    We will miss your wisdom.
    We will miss your joy.
    We will miss your stories.
    We will miss your help.
    We will miss your friendship.

    We will miss having a dilly dilly with you.
    Sam, I wish you “had time for just one more”.

  5. Sam. I only got to spend a few precious moments with you. However, in that time I came away with the impression that you were a truly honorable gentleman. I hold you in high esteem.
    May you rest in peace.
    May the martyrs come to welcome you. May the angels lead you into paradise.


  6. Dad, I still do not understand why you had to be taken from us. I am deeply saddened by this. You taught me so much and guided me the best you could. You always made sure that I was in the care of you and mom. It is hard for me to believe that you are gone. I am still waiting for you to knock on my door and say, “I need a taster”. I know you don’t like me crying but your absence in my life well, I can not stop crying. I know you are in a better place, I hope you are cooking it up, up there. I miss you and I love you very much. Thank you for being a DAD to me. I will see you one day when he calls for me.

  7. A great man I had the pleasure of meeting over several years. A respectful and hardworking family man. We are heartbroken with his untimely passing. Our condolences to his wife Aurora and his family.

  8. My husband was truly a wonderful husband,friend and he took care of me. He was loved by everyone he met. His customers became his friends and they all loved him. Sammy is missed.
