To the Brett and Wolynec families, our sincere condolences in the recent loss of Sam. We often recall his quiet sense of humour when we were vacationing in Texas a couple of years ago. Sam will certainly be missed by many.
My heartfelt sympathy to the family. I had the pleasure of meeting uncle Sam a handful of times when he came out to the west coast (Vancouver). He was always warm and charming. I know he will be sadly missed by all who had loved and known him. Peace be with you all during this difficult time.
Sending condolences to the Wo lynec and Brett families at this sad time.
We have fond memories of time we spent in Texas with Sam.
Sincerely Ian Francis and Sheila Courtney. .We Sheila
