  7. Dear: Rhonda and Ingo Family
    I am so sorry to hear about your son. My heart goes out to all your family. My Nephew pass away about three years ago unexpectedly. Hear is a poem I like to send to your family.
    Don’t grieve for me for now I’m free, I’m following the path God laid for me. I took his hand when I heard him call, I turned my back and left it all. I could not stay another day to laugh, to love, to work or play. Task left undone will stay that way, I found the peace at close of day. If my parting has left a void, then fill it with remembered joy. A friendship shared, a laugh a kiss, Ah yes, these things I, too will miss. But not burdened with times of sorrow, I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. My life has been full, I’ve savored much. Good friends, good times, a loved one touch. Perhaps my time seemed all to brief, lift up your hearts and share with me, God wanted me now. He set me free.

    Sincerely, Cindy Tracy
    P.S. Please send me your address.

  8. My condolences to you and your family. My husband and I were the ones that were going west bound on Hwy 160 as they were going east bound, and witness the accident and called 911.

  9. Ingo family,

    You are in our thoughts and prayers… I remember Chad and Sam growing up together and how cute they both were… and still are. We are deeply sorry for your loss and pray that God’s loving arms surround you and give you peace and comfort during this difficult time. Just remember that God will never leave you or forsake you… let Him be your strong tower through it all. That handsome smile and friendly young man will be missed dearly. Our hearts and prayers go out to you all.

  10. I read of your loss and wanted to send a note of sympathy. As I read of Samuel’s life and his love of life I can only imagine what a joy he was to be with, the best friend anyone could have. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him. What a full life he had in just 22 years. I have shared with others two wonderful scriptures that give much comfort at times like these. 2 Cor. 1:3, 4 which speaks of “the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation.” and Isaiah 51:12 “I – I myself am the One that is comforting you people.” I believe we can treasure the wonderful memories and I know you have many, a loving son, brother, grandson, nephew and friend to many. Please know you are in the thoughts of many.

  11. My sincerest condolences for your loss. Let me also take this opportunity to convey my family’s condolences. Although living across a sometimes busy highway, we all have more in common than different while raising our families in this world. You are all in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.

  12. Sam, Kristie & family,

    We are so sorry for your loss! May you be comforted by family and friends. God will give you the strength and you will have memories that will last forever.

  13. Dear Ingo/Rider family,

    We know that there truly are no words that can be said and no actions that can be done to make this any better for all of you, so we just wanted to say we have been thinking about and praying for all of you! Take care of yourselves and each other, and remember even in times of great sorrow it is okay to laugh and smile especially when you think of what a wonderful and funny young man you all raised! We love you guys,

    Stephanie & Gina

  14. Sam, Kris, Chad, Lane, Tuffy & Bailey … Our hearts ache for you during this very difficult time. As the days pass try to remember that its never truly “GOODBYE”, its just “SEE YOU LATER” … Take comfort in knowing that Ants will make sure “Sammo” is well taken care of. Please know that there will always be a special place in our hearts and our prayers for “Sammo” and your family.

  15. Our hearts go out the Ingo family, what a tragedy, and so young too. You are all in our thoughts and prayers

  16. Sam – What a joy it was to know you. You were always such a fun kid to be around. We have so many great memories of you with Andrew and all the other Cyclone Basketball players. What fun all of us parents had because of that team. Even though our record was never very good, we had the spirit because of you. You are now safe in the arms of Jesus. Watch over all of us!

    Craig, Robin, Tim, Andrew & Nathan Ravenkamp

  17. Sam you were a great friend and a great rider thank’s for teaching me all you did you will be missed but never forgotten…mr wheelly king..

  18. Sam,
    While writing this we are sitting here still in shock. We can’t believe that you are actually gone. You were a wonderful friend and person. We will miss hanging out with you. You always knew how to make people laugh. We will always keep you in our hearts. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family during this hard time.

  19. To All of the Ingo Family,
    My heart goes out to all of you at this time. I know the pain that you’re feeling from this tragic loss. It’s so hard when a loved one is taken from you this way. I send you lots of hugs and kisses. Tell lots of stories of Sam and he will always be with you. I love you all so much.

  20. Ingo Family, I cant even beging to tell you the sorrow we fill in our hearts for all of you. My heart aches for you. May God give you strength and comfort. Sorensen Family

  21. Sammo,
    To be honest I wish I wasnt sitting here writting about how you’re gone but I am and its one of the hardest things to do. If I could write about all the great times I had with you I would need more time. Everytime you were around there were smiles on everyones face. I’ll never forget the first time I met you or the first time we all went snowboarding. There are just so many memories. My thoughts and prayers go out to your family and friends. We all miss you so much Sammo. I’ll have a bowl of french onion soup for you. I love you Sammo


  22. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. There are no words to express the deep sadness we feel and how much we will miss Sam. Our hearts are breaking for everyone that was lucky enough to have had Sam in their lives. He was such a very special person and we will miss all the great times we had together, all the family and Bronco parties. They hold such wonderful memories and we feel blessed that we were able to share so many with Sam. Sam always has and always will hold a very special place in our hearts. Love to you all.

    We all spent alot of time together enjoying the 4th of July and watching the Broncos!
    Kelsey still tells the story that in high school, Sam asked her if they were cousins or in some way related because we were always around while he was growing up!
    Hey Sam… you will always be our “special” cousin. 🙂

  29. Sammo
    You said ” You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only option you have” and thats what we are all trying to do, but everytime we think of that smile our heart feels weak. You were such a great friend, we will miss you more than words can explain.

    Love always
    T & Odie

  30. Sam-Kris and Family I cant begin to express in mere words the sorrow i feel for your loss.
    I have watched Sammo grow from a carefree kid into one of the most loveable and respectful young men I have ever known. I cant imagine a get togather at one of our homes or the drag strip without his big hug and “HEY PAPA BERCK” with the same for Sandy “HOWS MAMA B”
    Our hearts are heavy with Sammos passing from us here on earth but I rest asured that he is with God now and watching over us all to brighten a bad day with just a thought of the memories we have all had.

  31. Sam, we will miss you so much. You were such a great friend and we love you dearly. We will never forget your smile. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and all of your wonderful family.

  32. Phil and I would like to express our deepest sympathy for your loss of Sam. He was a joy to be around and he always made people smile. We will miss seeing him at bowling on Friday nights with his brother.
    Please let us know if we can be of any help or assitance to you and your family. We are hear for you.
    Again please accept our deepest regrets about your loss.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

  36. Sam, Dorothy, and all of the Ingo Family,
    No words can replace the loss that you feel in your hearts. Death is hard to understand, hard to grasp, hard to believe, and very hard for those left behind. May it be of consolation to know that you have many, many relatives, friends and loved ones who are with you during this time of great sadness. Our prayers will be with you.
    John & Anita Musso, Washington, DC

  44. Sam,
    You lived right down the street from me when I lived in Pueblo West. You always made so many people laugh, you were always all smiles and the jokster. This world is already different without you in it. You were so young, but were living life to its fullest. I will do the same in your honor… My thoughts and prayers are with your family friends. For those who knew you had an enriched life just by knowing you.

  46. Sam and family
    I can’t even fantom your loss. Sam was a good kid. Enjoyed working with him and being his friend. I have this empty spot in my heart now that Sam is gone. I can see him in heaven riding his crotch rocket and smiling with that big grin of his. Such a loss

  47. Dearest Family, the last two years have been such a difficult time for you. I know my words cannot make you feel better, but know that there are so many people out there that love you and share in your pain. Dorothy and Sam you need to take care of yourselves now, as the family needs your strength to get through this ordeal.
    Love you Jo

    Gene and Barbara Broce
    Cheraw, Co.

  49. Dear Sam, Kristi, Chad and family,
    I wish that I had a special word that would take away your pain and sorrow. I saw the support Chad and Sam gave to little brother Lane at the Stock Show coming to watch and encourage him and all the little kids. How close the cousins were at that time. A true close family at heart. I am so sorry for your loss. No parent should have to lose a child yet through faith we are taught that God will not give us more than we can handle. Just know that Chelsea and I are praying for you and that our thoughts are with you at this time.

  50. Sammo,

    I didn’t know you that well but I do know that you will be missed…The day Pat & I bought our truck we figured out that we knew each other. Kind of anyway…Your dad bought my dad’s tranny…It’s a small world huh? I’ve known most of your family since I was a baby. I should have kept up with you all better and maybe I would have known you better…R.I.P.

    Kim and Steven Martin

  54. Sam, words cannot express the loss that so many people are feeling right now. I am so blessed to have been able to call you my friend.

He was always smiling, while also often entertaining his other classmates with his classroom antics. I pray that memories of good times together give you comfort. May God bless and hold you all tightly in His arms while He is giving you the graces and strength of faith you need to accept the loss of Sam.

  59. Rhonda, Jim, Chad, Brandi, Bill,
    Words can not express my sadness and pain. I can remember like it was yesterday all the kids playing together at your house. I think my childrens best memories growing up was with your family and all the things they did with you. My heart is breaking for all of you in the pain that you must be dealing with. I love Sam and all of you so so much and only wish I could be there with you now. Love always Lisa, Brandon and Sarah

  60. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time. I did not know you but I know your dad, Aunt Beth and Grandma Dorothy, so you had to be someone special.

  61. Little did we know that morning that God would call you name. In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same.
    It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone. For part of us went with you the day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide. And though we cannot see you, you are always on our side. Our family chain is broken and nothing seems the same.
    But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again. You’ll never be forgotten. Love Auntie Beth

  62. Hey Mammo.
    I’m glad you finally moved on and realized there is other girls out there in this world. You are so right about Erin, She is a very pretty girl. I meet her today. Oh my gosh. She was the prettiest girl. And the sweetest too.
    I just wanna let you know that there was no guy in the world like you. You were just amazing. You had the whole package. You could make anyone laugh their butt off. No matter what. I tell you though, one thing I’m gonna miss the most, Is during Christmas time when Noni would wrap one of my presents and put your name on it. Gee’s you would always hold it up and say something so funny.
    We are gonna miss you very much. It’s never going to be the same without Sammo.
    Love you,
    Sammi Jo(Sam 1111)
    P.s. Tell Uncle Roni Hi for me k.

  63. I will miss you playing with me on my Thomas the train, you throwing me in the air and most of all I will miss your smile, hugs & kisses. I love you Mammo!
    Your baby cousin, Jacob Anthony

  64. Sam, Our deepest sympathy goes out to you and your family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    The Miller Family

  65. Darby and I would like to let you know how heartbroken we are for your family over the loss of Sam. We are currently out of town and are unable to attend the service. We are praying for your family and know that God is a great God and will meet you in your time of need. We will miss Sam very much we have such great memories of our time watching Steve and Sam and their friends playing ball. May God comfort you and pour out his Grace over you. Our love and Prayers, Mike and Darby Jordan

  66. Mammo,
    You were one of a kind, Words wont explain what we lost. I will miss you greatly! The next Wally is for you brother!

  67. There is not one bad thing that can be said about Sam. He was full of life with a heart of gold!!!!!! Always said the right things to make everyone laugh! Sam touched so many lives… I’m so blessed to have had him in my life for so many years! Miss you and love you bud!

  68. Sam you will be missed greatly. I can still remember the football games, Deca, and all the stuff we did when we were kids. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Your friend David

  69. To the Ingo family, my thoughts and prayers are with you during this sad time. Sam was an amazing person he always put a smile on your face no matter what mood you were in, he always mad you feel welcome even if you were a new face to the crowd. I went to school with Sam, graduated from Pueblo West with him, and all our friends rode our motorcycles together, we would hang out at the gas station on Red Creek Springs Road, and he was always the one to say “let’s go ride, none of bought these bikes to be used as lawn chairs”. He was a great guy and will be missed by many, but he will never be forgotten.

  70. There are no words that can take away any of the pain that all of you are feeling. Just try to remember all of the good times and laughter that you were lucky to share with Sammo. Watching him grow up was a treat, not only were we part of the family but our kids Lyndsi and Michael were with Sammo everyday for daycare at Rhonda’s house. Lyndsi was even lucky enough to take a trip to Las Vegas with Sammo and Chad their senior year of high school. The boys had a special place in her heart, THANK YOU for that. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you

  71. To the Ingo Family, I want You to know that Our prayers are with You, and that we loved Sam like a brother and we’ll miss him a lot, but we also want to thank You for having such a kind hearted kid, may God give You the strenght to overcome this sad moment and cherish all the great memories he gave all of Us.

    The Magallon Family.

  72. Brother-words cannot explain the feelings that are held within. I miss you so much and you will always be in my heat forever. Love you!

  73. To Sam & Kriste and family; Dorothy and Big Sam; Chad; Rhonda & Jim; William; and all other family members:

    We know words will not ease the sorrow when the depth of your heartbreak is so deep. But maybe knowing that your friends share in your grief and are keeping you in their thoughts and prayers will help you through this very difficult time.

    With much love and sympathy,

    The Ruzanski and Benesch Families
