My sympathy to Sammy's immediate and extended family. I worked with Sammy while I was a reading teacher at Whiteaker Middle School in the 90's. Sammy was a very dedicated and caring teacher and will be missed by many people. She cared deeply about her students and wanted only the best for them.
Sammy touched so many hearts and minds! Her caring attitude and warm smile will never be forgotten by me. I taught with Sammy at Whiteaker Junior High and she never failed to make me smile too.
She will be greatly missed by family and friends. I wish I could attend her Memorial Mass but I will be out of town. Her family and close friends remain in my prayers.
