Ellen,
Our deepest condolences to you and your family. Connie and I just read about the sad news in the paper.
I believe the last time we met both you and Sam was at the Chestnut Hill Diner, which was quite some time ago.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

I can't believe he's gone.
I can't imagine how hard this must on you, Ellen.. And the rest of the family.
Sam was such an amazing, kind, loving and caring person. He was such a big part of my life. I never stopped thinking about him. He was like a grandfather to me, and you, Ellen, being like a grandmother to me. I loved him so much and always will. I love you too, Ellen. I will miss him so much. I'll never forget him. I'm so so sorry for your loss. My prayers, love, and thoughts are with you and your family.
With much love, Maria Janke

Our condolences go out to you Ellen. We are truly sorry to hear this news and our hearts ache for you. We met Sam and Ellen, of course, on a cruise and as luck would have it, we all sat at the same table and became friends instantly. We will truly miss Sam and that sense of humor of his, and we are here for you Ellen. XOXO
