To Marie and family, Past District Governor Sam will be remembered in many ways ... his smile, his knowledge, his ability to get things done, his leadership skills, his mentoring, his friendship and compassion, his dignified manner and his professionalism. He will be missed most for the love he showed to others and the relationships he had with people who knew him. Those around him have lost a great deal but the loss for his family must feel unbearable. Please accept our sympathy and although we cannot know the depth of your grief, we care greatly about your sadness. We pray that God’s presence will be felt, through the compassion of those surrounding you with their love; and, that you will eventually experience some peace and comfort. Lions Claudette & Gerald Coombs
