Not ready to let you go, Sam. I wish I could tell you, Sam. I’m not ready to let you go. But you’ve already departed, and my heart is feeling so low. I miss that little twinkle that used to light up your eyes, and I miss the sound of your voice, your laughter, and your sighs. But most of all, I miss the way you made me feel, like I was your angel here on earth, because you love was so strong and real. No one really wants to say goodbye, Sam, but I know you’re with our Heavenly Father in eternal peace.
