  • Jeanne Epperson

    I’m so deeply sorry that tragedy has struck. Sam was enjoying one of his greatest fun things and being respectful of his safety and care on the road. And from out of nowhere, someone wasn’t. I feel his loss in anger. Much too young and was setting himself up to succeed. Getting straight with all he cared about. I will miss Sam. A good kid. A good son. A good grandson. And a good uncle. And obviously a good friend and guide to many. Blessings and peace.
