Samuel had a quality many of us as adults lack - the ability to find true joy and pleasure in the simple things in life - his family, a tight hug, and a hardy laugh. What a world we would all live in if we could all be a little more like Sam. Sam loved his family more than words - he loved their smiles, their smells, their warm embraces, their giant hands to hold, the songs they sang, the stories they told, and the sounds of their laughter. He loved his parents and brothers more than anything in the world. Sam loved playing with his toys, dancing with his little legs, and snuggling his loyal stuffed animals, Puppy and Ducky. Sam was always a lover of music and movies, but his forever favorite is "Moana". Sam loved his soft blue blanket, his ocean sound mobile, playing with people's glasses, and beards.
There will never be enough words or time or space to describe Samuel; he is and will always be like a breath of fresh air. His smile could wake the sun and his laughter could make the world turn. Sam exploded with life and strength, and in turn he gave so many of us life and strength. In making Samuel, it was one of the few times God saw fit to stay late at the office, roll up his sleeves, and perfect the mold. Without ever speaking a word, Sam has taught so many of us more in his short time than we could have learned without him in a million lifetimes. Samuel was brave - he had the heart of a warrior and the strength of an army; he was courageous and resilient beyond compare. The imprint Sam has made in so many lives is nothing shy of a miracle. So many of us have learned from Sam what it is to love someone, to fight hard and with a brave face, and to embrace the glimmers of joy and hope along our journey. We are blessed to have known Samuel and we will carry him in our hearts forever. Thank you to all our family and friends for being a part of Team Super Sam.
