So sorry to hear that my first cousin once removed has gone to meet his heavenly father. I met Sam & Donna in 2003, here in Jackson, Mississippi, at the CLOER NATION-WIDE REUNION at my home. It was such a pleasure to get to meet him and other family members for the first time. My dad would have been so happy to have met him, but dad passed in 1982. Sam will be missed. Blessings to all the remaing family.
