One of the few people on this earth with the gift of absolute love, and understanding. This is what I know Mr. Sam had, and used. This world has lost one of the chosen of these gifts. Saying My Condolences is lacking, but are the only words even remotely fitting.

My condolences to the family. I had the opportunity to meet Mr. Sam while he was with us at St. Alphonsus in Nampa. I enjoyed our conversations about the pow wows and his family. I was very saddened to hear he had passed and wanted to let his family know that he graced my life, even for a brief time.

Dear Dam family, Please accept my deepest sympathy for the loss of your dear loved one. It seems no greater sadness is felt than when someone so dear to us is loss. May you find comfort in your memories and draw strength from a promise God has provided which gives the hope of someday being reunited with your beloved Robert (John 5:28,29). This promised future is one that will be filled with great joy because it will include perfect health and everlasting life on a paradise earth where "the former things have passed away" (Rev. 21:4, Psalms 37:29). May you during this most difficult time find some comfort in knowing that God does care and He does hear our cries. Please accept my most sincere condolences.
