I'm your grand daughter. I love you. You are strong. I wish we could hang out and know each other.
"Hey buddy, all your friends at the coffee shop miss you, but I know you are having fun somewhere!
Your old buddy Greg"
"Miss you, Dad. We all miss you! So much love, Jennifer"
"Miss you Uncle Sam."
"You may be away some where but you and our friendship remain in my heart."
"Hi Uncle Sam,
Was on the lower east side this weekend with friends and thinking of you and your sisters growing up. You'd get a kick out of how much it's changed. We miss you, especially my mom. Happy birthday. Love to Aunt Esther. Cheryl"
"Hey Sam! Happy birthday from your coffee shop and computer buddy!
"We had some good times at the coffee shop, talking computers and just plain stuff. I've uploaded some pictures I had. I'll remember the good times Sam.
"Four years? Can't believe it. We all miss you Uncle Sam, especially my mom, who talks about you all the time. Love you, Cheryl"
"Thinking of you Uncle Sam. We miss and love you. Stacey"
"I miss you, Dad. Love forever."
"Many have told me that with the passing years, it gets easier losing a loved one. For me, it gets more difficult. 4 years already - oy vey !"
"The big 8-0. You would've gotten a kick out of that.
Miss you Uncle Sam. Think about you often.
Hope you and Ma are getting along. Don't be so hard on her...she's nervous..lol and no smoking. Rich"
"Happy Birthday Dad !"
"Hi Uncle Sam,
It seems like you were just here in NJ visiting us, talking to me about writing, life. You were so caring, kind...unless there was no half & half in the house for your coffee; then you went ballistic! Hope you and Aunt Esther are sharing lots of coffee and half & half. Miss you. Cheryl"
"I miss you Dad. A lot of grand moments most revolving around baseball. LOL For some reason I remember every moment of this day-from the drive to the park to the drive home....like it was yesterday. http://www.baseball-reference.com/boxes/SDN/SDN199204120.shtml 21 years ago.....where has the time gone ?"
You were a very good friend. We must have had coffee a hundred times. We talked about everything. You were SO funny. Such a wise guy. So smart, creative. Most of all you had a huge heart. You will always be one of my best friends ever. Love, Robert"
"Happy birthday, Uncle Sam."
"1974, 1975, 1976 you would pick me up from school and take me to opening day for the Reds. I would get to miss 1/2 the day. You would have to take grief from the attendance office. LOL
Boy, was that special. Happy Birthday"
"Happy Birthday, Dad."
"Dear Uncle Sam,
We all miss you so very much....your name was spoken about a hundred times last night! And we all looked at so many amazing pictures of you with my Mom although I know you both are together right now smiling down on all of us.
"On the second anniversary of your death, Dad, I miss you more than ever. The kids miss you. We love you."
"Miss you Dad. Think about you every day."
"Happy Fathers Day ! Wow, the Padres are awful this year. I remember the first game we ever went to was the Reds versus the Padres in 1974."
"Well, happy birthday grandpa. I am now in fourth grade and it just seems like yesterday that my dad told me that you passed away. I always think of you and I wish you were here right now.
"You raised me on some humanistic fundamentals that help me today in so many ways live a life of tremendous value ! Allow me to give but one example. At age of 6, I heard a racist comment in school and then used it at home----wow, did I receive a stern lecture from you about why this was a unethical and evil thing to do. Thanks for all you did."
"Will never forget your bachelor apartment in Cherry Hill, N.J. To me..you were the coolest uncle in the world. I remember your red sports car and that neat poster from your time in Spain. The last time we spoke you wished me well with Holly. The family misses u greatly,"
"Dear "Bopbop" (Grandpa Sam),
I miss you. It has been hard celebrating holidays without you. When you came over you brought a Julian Pie with ice cream and Pelligrino water. You were the best singer. I love you.
Have a suggestion for us?
