    So sorry for your loss. Sam was a terrific person and coworker. (I worked with him in EREC). I never heard him say an unkind word about anyone in all the years I’ve known him! I will miss seeing him in the halls here at the Finance Center in DFAS. We will continue to keep you, Shelia in our prayers and will pray for the strength you will need in the coming days. Just remember you will not walk alone…let God be your guide and lean on him.

    It is with my deepest sympathy that I express my sorrow at the loss of your loved one Sam. Sam and I have worked together for at least 20 years, and it was a pleasure working with him for all those years. Sam will surely be missed but not forgotten.

    Sam, kindness will always be remembered, I’ll never forget that walk he had. The swinging of his arms. He still lives on the tapes of your films, in the pictures of your albums and in your heart of hearts. Sheila, death ends a life, not the memories of your wonderful HUSBAND….

    I have only known Sam for about a year but I knew him to be a very nice man and always with a ready smile. The way he talked about his wife…I could tell they were best friends and that he loved her very much. I am so glad I got to meet Sam. I will pray for Sam, Sheila and their family.

    I am so sorry to hear of the passing of a true gentleman and one of my high school friends. Sam was a great person filled with compassion for all. My life is richer having known him and I will always treasure the memories of a man I considered the best of us.

    I wish to express my condolences on the loss of Sam Synder. He was a very kind and sweet man. He was a wonderful person and always had a smile that would light up the room. I will miss hearing Sam laugh and seeing his wonderful smile. Sheila please know that God will always be there for you and will help you keep the wonderful memories of your husband alive for you. Hold on to God’s unchanging hand. Remember He will wipe every tear away from your eyes. I leave you with this verse
    John 14:27
    Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as his world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
    May God bless and keep you always….Amen!
