Sam's 9th grade picture before diagnosis 10/99
Sam on his lawnmower.  The only kid to have a smile on his face while cutting the grass.
Sam's brother Joe had this tatoo in his memory.
Sam really wanted a John Deere.  A special angel donated one on the day he died.  We didn't accept it.  Sam went to heaven and has his own John Deere to do his work for God.

Sam went to heaven on 12/22/00 after a 13 month battle with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

Sam was a young entrepreneuer who had his own lawn business called Sam's Lawn Maintenance.  He had his own business card, equipment and lots of initiative.

A week before he was diagnosed with cancer, he was landscaping our front yard and installing wired lights along the walkway.

November 8th 1999, he complained of pain in the right side of of his abdomen.  I thought he had appendicitis.  He was diagnosed with a 16 cm tumor in his chest, the size of an elongated football.  A CT scan indicated another tumor the size of a softball on his right kidney.

He had stage III non-hodgkin's lymphoma.
Ryan and Sam June 2000.
It is through giving that we receive, and it is through dying that we are born to eternal life.
