"Oh Sam, where do I began with you?? Too many memories that I will cherish forever. Your heart of gold is what I will remember you most. Always helping out where and when you could. Your mom and I now have a bond that neither of us ever thought we would have, but we get through our days knowing we have one another there if we need each other. You keep looking after my baby boy till I get there. I trusted you with him when he was here on earth, I know you are doing the same in heaven. What I wouldn't do to bring you two back to earth. The heart ache is unbearable sometimes and your mom struggles. I love you beautiful girl and until I you meet me at the gates of heaven with my Laners, keep him working on them 3 pointers, and I'm sure by now you are pretty good at basketball. I love you Samantha Franks!!!"

"Our memories build a special bridge when loved ones have to part,
to help us feel we're with them still and sooth a grieving heart.
Our memories span the years we shared, preserving ties that bind, They build a special bridge of love and bring us peace of mind.
