    Thank you so much for allowing me to connect and share this amazing time together. It is unlike any live streaming event I have ever participated in. I canceled all meetings and calls for the rest of the day. Les, what a beautiful touching portrait of Uncle Sam you gave. It touched me deeply as I sit here at my desk at home. I am no longer in despair that I could not attend – because I did. Thank you for reading my note.

    Love to you all !!!!

    Pat and Les, our thoughts and prayers have been with you throughout this very trying time. We are so glad we could share this day with you.
    Les, how very special for you to share such beautiful memories of Uncle Sam.
    We were so fortunate to have such a lovely visit with him just a month ago. I can tell you, he was so full of gratitude and love for you for both, for all you have done for him and Aunt Leone throughout these last years. He spoke very highly of you both, from the heart ❤️
    He was a good man and will be missed. Take solace in knowing he is in a peaceful place now.

    I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to know Sam and share laughs with him each day. I have missed him dearly since he left Missionwood and though I am sad that he is gone, I am truly happy that he is at rest. Please know that our thoughts are with Leone and your entire family at this time.
