The deep pain that is felt at the death of every friendly soul arises from the feeling that there is in every individual something which is inexpressible, peculiar to him alone, and is, therefore, absolutely and irretrievably lost.

"We had such a fun time down at Winterblast this year. He was such a good sport lighting my bombs on a stick and was so excited about building cylinder shells after helping me build them down there. He had lots of great ideas and plans with fireworks that he was excited about trying.

He was a good friend and will be missed greatly."

----------------------

"I'm really at a loss of words over our recent loss... He truly was a great friend.

You could always count on Sam to be there, whether it was helping me move, working at the bunker in fielding, or just showing up for breakfast. He was a one of a kind."

----------------------

"In the few years I have known him he was always helping everyone with there projects . The last time Sam and I went to the bunker we took his dog and my two dogs, did a little work up there and had a great time. I am going to miss him."
