One Condolence for Samuel Thomas Bramble

  • I was always in awe of Sam, being able to live such a full life for such a long time. I was his pew mate at church until my physical disabilities made it hard to get there and yet Sam was still making it even after knee replacements after 90! His love and care for his wife was a beautiful thing to see. We should all be so lucky. He was special. I am sorry for your lose but know he is a happier man today. Bless you all.
