Sam (& David briefly) joined us in 1993 and I handled a number of his clients from that date onward. All his clients are extremely fond of Sam and asked me about him often. They especially enjoyed the postcards that Sam sent when he was travelling. Sam was still working until about 4 years ago when he finally stopped. He was fortunate to have good health so long, allowing us to see more of him. He was still driving into his 90s but prior to giving up driving he drove my girls home one day and that turned out to be a trip they wouldn't forget or duplicate. We will miss him!
