  5. Jenni and Family,
    I can’t express my sadness when I heard of Sam’s passing. You all have always meant so much to me and have thought alot about you over the years. It’s sad to think that we always will or have the time to reconnect with those who helped mold our lives who shared our dreams, laughter, fun and sad times together. Jenni I wish I could be with you now. Sam was such great fun and how he could embarrass me, and he had great fun doing it! Allan still brings up some of Sam’s old stories and jokes just to get a chuckle out of me. I have missed you all and think of you often. Jenni you are in our prayers.
    Love and friendship

  6. Hi Jenni,

    I’m so sorry for your lost of Sam. I always enjoyed the two of you when I was
    barrel racing. So glad you had 35 years with him. May G-d be with you and
    your family.

    Yours truly,


  7. Dear Jenni,
    I am so sorry to hear about Sam and also about Jeff, I didn’t know he passed away also. In Revlation chpt 21:4 Jehovah God promises “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” Thru Jesus Christ ransome sacrifice we know we have the hope of a resurrection to a wonderful paradise here on earth. It would be great to talk to you. My parents still lives on orange st. My prayers are with you.

  8. I will always remember Sam as one of the “GOOD GUYS”.
    We are so sorry for your loss.
    Lois & Randy Vanderpool

  9. Jenni,
    They say…
    If you have
    One Good Wife,
    One Good Horse and
    One Good Dog,
    You’re doing O.K.
    I’ve got all three and they travel with me…
    By Paul Tierney – World Champion Cowboy
    I know that Sam had all of this with you.
    Take care, you are in our prayers.
    Roger and Linda Pitts and Family

  10. Jenni,

    Our deepest sympathy, Judy & Barbara
