    I became friends with Samary at the East Liverpool Hospital School of Nursing and all of the sweet things written about her definitely describe the "Sam"that I worked with. Whether working with her peers, teaching students, or caring for patients, she was always thoughtful, and knowledgeable. Although I moved away from East Liverpool many years ago, we stayed in touch through our annual exchange of Christmas cards. Over the decades, our comments covered the changes in our lives but always centered on our loved ones. May our loving God comfort, strengthen, and guide each of you. Shelda Johnston
