Sam, remembering your kind and encouraging words gives me strength and a reason to try a little harder in my life. I am so thankful for you, my sweet brother. Please give Mother and Daddy one of your wonderful hugs for me. Love you.

I love you Daddy. I am lighting a candle for you today, but the light you left with us is always glowing in my heart.

Sam’s gentle, calm nature provided a welcomed balance to our energetic family. He was not without passion, however, for his job, his spirituality, and especially for his wife, my sister, and his beautiful girls. A giver in every sense, Sam was a brother-in-law who erased the “in-law” phrasing from our minds through his unwavering devotion to each of us, generously and unconditionally. Thank you, Sam.

My Uncle Sam always had a smile and big hug to give out. He was a lot of things that made him a role-model to me, but above all I admired his devotion to others, continual support, compassion, and selfless giving. I still see certain qualities in people around me and say to myself, "he/that reminds me of Uncle Sam" - and I will forever treasure the warm memories that resurface in that way.

I can't believe it has been 10 years. I miss you and love you with all my heart, daddy, and can remember your voice, hugs, and humor like it was yesterday. I will enjoy contributing stories and memories to this wonderful memorial. One day I will share it with my own children, and it will be treasured by them, too.

Sam Bottoms had an amazing capacity to validate anyone around him with his affection and his endearing "nick names" for those he loved. His smile was always warm, receiving, & freely given. I loved how his eyes would get that gleam in them & squint a little when he smiled. His consistent appreciation and gratitude for Pam, Samantha, Lisa, and his family members & friends was a model for us all.
