  • William McClintock My sincere condolences to you Diana and your family. I will forever be grateful for everything Sam has done for me. He cared, listened, made me laugh and had a personality that lit everyone up. I will miss seeing that hat sticking up over the desk and the scarf and sport coat even in the summer time. He made an impact on so many, including me. It is my honor to have called him my friend. I am so sorry for your loss, you, your family and Sam will be in my prayers.
  • Courtney Robarge Sam was always the laughter and light of Majestic and more than that, a outstanding friend. Many laughs, conversation and playing pranks on each other. A man full of life and fun. I miss Sam dearly. As we always said "you know I love you more than my luggage." My thoughts and prayers are with Diana, family and friends.
