    Our good friend Sam died on Friday the 13th of February.

    We've known Sam since the first time we've moved in together. when i speak of "we" it means me and my hubby. we lived in the same building as sam and sam was a bike messenger for 7 years. he was a really good friend of ours especially my hubbys. we've had our fair share of memories with this guy.

    sam and i liked eachother....we were good friends too. he didnt like me for a lil while but thats because he didnt understand some things about me. but we still maintained a friendship.

    my hubby threw a surprise bday party for me on year. sam was there and throughout the whole night, sam and i talked about the misunderstanding. and at the end of the night, he kissed my hand and bid me a goodnight. that was the last time i saw sam and i'm glad that i saw him that night to straighten things out.

    "July 27, 1977-February 13, 2004.

    Airborne trouper witht eh elite 82nd Airborne Division of Frot Bragg, NC. Sam was a San Francisco bicycle messenger for seven years, a gear headed and extreme sports enthusiast.

    Sam loved riding bicycles, motorcycles, skateboards, and playing roller hockey. He was thrilled and honered to be an air-born trooper and looked forward to his next jump. Constantly taking apart engines since a small child, he applied this trade while serving in the U.S. Army......

    i will miss sam.

    FUCK BUSH. fuck him. this makes me so much more angrier towards how things turned out. we never knew that sam would be a part of this and look how it turned out to be.

    so sorry to read this.
    my thoughts and prayers go out to you and your hub. :(

    our daily selfish concerns become insignificant once someone you know sacrificed themselves for a cause that becomes distorted.

    sounds like he led a very honorable life, and at least he was doing something he loved when it ended.
