    I personally know of Samantha through stories my daughter shared with me on the weekend’s her and her brother would come down and visit me. I am Morgan and Noah’s father so I hear a lot about Samantha and Justin. When my little girl called me and shared the news of Samantha’s passing earlier the morning of January 9, I was overcome by a great sadness, I am not ashamed to admit I was overcome by tears. I know where Samantha is right now and who she is with. But I still feel very sad for my children who are mourning the loss of their friend and I am mourning the loss of a child I never got to meet. But I cannot imagine what the parents of this precious child are even going through. Mr. and Mrs. Lee if there is anything I can do to help you anything within my means at all please don’t hesitate to ask.
    Your friend,
