    Frannie and family, I am sad to hear of your loss of Sammy. I remember visiting your home with my parents, Peter and Romy Muratore. I remember Sammy as always ready with a laugh,a joke a cold drink and a warm smile. He had a gift of making everyone feel welcome. I remember he took the time one day to help me to learn how to shuffle a deck of cards and make them ‘bridge’. His warm encouragement kept me trying for days afterwards ’til I mastered the skill. I know we will meet again in Heaven some day. You are in my prayers, for God’s peace at this time of great loss and the days to follow. with love and fond memories of all of you. Doreen(Muratore) Nottle

    I just happened to see the obit while looking for another. I certainly want to pass along my condolences, Sam, as well as his brother Pat, played a big part of my childhood. They were always supportive and we all looked at them as uncles. Sam was a nice guy that was always their to help, if you need it.Although now I realize he was not much older than I. To his Family I just want to say you have my sincere sympthays. Gene Nardi l
