Sam’s Final Thoughts and Prayers for Everyone

 This is to be shared with all those I love and care deeply about, I elected not to have a funeral service.  I wanted to go out without any fanfare or crying.  I asked these final thoughts be shared with you following my passing.

 Live a life without any regrets.

If you are lucky to find love, don’t let it go.

Never go to bed angry and tell your family you love them every day.

Laugh as loud as you can.  Play the same.

Celebrate what I had and not what I lost.

Do your very best at anything you try.

Choose your battles carefully.  You can’t win all the time.

I do not want anyone to be sad for me.  I believe I had a life well lived.

We cannot choose when it is our time to die, it is a decision made from up above.

God Bless everyone of you until we meet again.

Love to you all,


Interment will be held at Ridgeview Memorial Park in Allen, Texas.
