by Jon, Denise and Evan:
Sam - Last night when your brother Evan said again "I wish Sam didn't get so sick", he was speaking for the family. Not a day goes by that we do not think of you, that we do not wish you were here to share our lives with us. When we are in the toy store, we look at toys that we think you would have liked, when Evan plays basketball, he wishes that he could have taught his brother, when mommy lays in bed watching TV, she wishes you were in her arms to hold.
You taught us a lot, Sam Justin, more than any 3 month old should teach his family. We learned about love, about true courage, about what is important in life.
I have written before about how we have found solace in Beatles music. When we hear the lyric, "When its dark and cloudy, there is still a light shines down on me. Shine until tomorrow, let it be", we think of you. Keep on shining upon us, Sam Justin. We will always love you.
