My Tribute: Samuel passed unexpectedly early morning on Aug 15, 2021. Skip may have been one person in the world, but he meant the world to many. While he grew up and had many friends and family in Maryland, his new journey took him to Louisiana where he made new friends and new family. Skip was a free spirit who kept an open mind and open heart. He spent time searching himself personally and spiritually, and had a drive to always be better. Skip showed his love in more than the conventional ways. Skip would help others less fortunate, even at times , when he himself was struggling. If you needed help, Skip was there. If you needed a different point of view, he had it. My world will never be the same without my brother, but I’m grateful he has found the peace he searched for all his life. Skip, until we meet again, your family and friends will miss you dearly. I look forward to the day we are together again. Fly High

My Tribute: My beautiful baby sister is forever 36 years old. We tragically lost her to heroin on 10/24/2021 and I have never been so heartbroken in my entire life. She was an amazing person who loved so deeply and wanted so much to fight her demons and live a normal life. I will never know what brought her to need to use again, but all I hear in my head is her voice saying “I love you Stephy.” And I hope it never goes away.
