Dan and family,
I am sorry to learn of your dad’s passing. He was a good friend to my mom, Hilda, while she was a resident at Schuylkill Center. I always enjoyed talking with him, even though he was quiet and kept to himself. He was very proud of his military service and often shared stories with me. Rest in peace, Sam. A good man, gone too soon.
