To Sam’s family - I am so sorry for your loss. I met Sam when we worked together at the Catherine Street Delchamps, and our paths crossed several times. I will always remember Sam as one of the hardest working, kind hearted, and selfless men I ever worked with. I stopped in the Theodore WD about a month ago and was so glad to see him and do some catching up. Before I realized it, thirty minutes had gone by, and I had to be moving on. I will think about him whenever I pass by that store. I am proud to say Sam was my friend.
