Those of us lucky enough to know Sam are forever blessed. She had a way of making you love her and those around her by just smiling. Her love of life was shown through her artwork, jewelry, and her willingness to help everyone. Cancer might have taken her life but she had the last laugh. No matter how hard the cancer or the cure attacked her she could still smile through it. Everyday she would smile at strangers and friends alike, and we would forget about her pain for a short moment. So today and every day, share a little bit of Sam with everyone, smile at them and make their day a little better. That is what Sam would do. So be angry, be mad, yell, cry, and then smile.
