Condolence Booklet

My Condolences to his sister and his mother, (if she is still alive), and poor King. It broke my heart to read in our newspaper of his passing. I am Rita's oldest sister. I use to like to pick on Sam. He was the only one who gave me a hug on my sister leaving me. And it was in Weis Store Pharmacy in Lock Haven. I live alone and no body cared to hug me on Rita's passing. Sam usually didn't know how to take me. But I still sent him and King Christmas cards. And I quite a bit asked Angie about him. I don't know if anybody told Charlie Passel. I do not drive or I would go tell him. But we always had a nice time together, and my sister Rita and me became close about 4-5 yrs. before she left me. So may God comfort and put his arms around you for Sam leaving us. I always considered him my brother-in-law even when Rita wasn't with us. I hope he is with my sister and her making him a Philadelphia cheese steak hoagie. She was good at it. This is from a heartbroken sister-in-law.
