  5. Samantha,
    We love you so much!! You were an amazing friend. Always supportive and had no fear of telling me when I was doing wrong. You kept me in-line while I was a young adult and I will always be grateful for the times you talked me out of some really stupid stuff. I also knew that you were always one call, Snapchat or message away. I’m going to miss you 😭 the girls loved you too! You were Sammie to Alice and you watched her grow. You were more of an aunt to my children and more of a sister to me than just a friend. I don’t know how I’m going to be ok without you. You were my best friend, my sweet, funny, loving, reliable and loyal friend. We’re going to miss you. 😭💋
