Hey everyone. I have some very sad news about Sam. I sent him an email earlier this afternoon to check on him and his wife, Barb, answered me with this sad news: "I am sorry to inform you, but Sam passed away on Saturday, July 1, 2017. His memorial service is this Friday, July 14, at Harrison Family Mortuary in Aberdeen, WA. I am his wife of almost 51 years ( August 20, 1966 ), Barb. His bone cancer became very painful the last week or so of his life, he is in a much better place, and not suffering any more. Would you pass the word around to people who he was communicating with, and would you keep our family in your prayers." This has saddened me deeply. Please keep Barb, and all of Sam's family, in your prayers. Thanks, Margie

Hey Dan! Good to see you on the blog! I hope you are doing well. I've been thinking about Sam, too. I have his email address so I'll send him an email to see how he's doing. I'll let you know if I hear anything. Take care! Margie

Good to see you on the blog, Margie! I posted about a month ago, but the blog closed out right after that and no one else posted. Hope that all are doing well. Northern California is heating up as well - must be summer time! Does anyone hear from WaSam? Haven't seen him on here for months. Take care all - Dan

Hi everyone. It's been too quiet on this blog so I thought I'd post a note to say hello. I hope all are doing well. It's been getting hotter in my area but not nearly as hot as some places in the country. Stay cool, everyone! Margie
