Condolence: I remember Sam from his time in the credit union industry. He was a leader during a time when credit unions needed one. My deepest sympathies to all who knew and loved him. May he rest in the peace of Christ.

Condolence: Dear Janice,
Know that I will be with you in Spirit tomorrow. Stay strong and take care of yourself. I will send a picture of you and Sam at Jeff's and my wedding.

Lots of love Tricia

Condolence: You were and always will be, the father of my son. In so many ways I view him as your reflection. He laughs exactly like you did and is a lawn guy, home improvement wizard in your likeness. I think the Lord distributed a very great share of your DNA to Tony!! His career has even been similar to yours!!
Janice... my heart is broken for your loss. He fought a courageous fight and managed to see all of “his people” before he passed. Take care and may all of your memories be fond and full of the love you shared.
Condolence From: Tom Rizzo, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Condolence: My Big Brother
Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same, but as God calls us, one by one, the chain will link again.... Once a Brother, always a Brother, no matter the distance, no matter the difference, and no matter the issue..... You will be missed..... RIP Big Brother.

Condolence: Dearest Janice and brothers Tom and Jim,
Your husband and brother was one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. Though I didn’t know him long, I will never forget him and I loved his quick wit. Stay strong the three of you during this time and know that time will heal. RIP Sam.
Condolence From: Samuel Rizzo, Westerville, OH
Condolence: Dear Sam,
When I lost you... I wish I could see you one more time, driving your Rubicon into the garage and come walking through the door. But I know that is impossible, I will hear your voice and laughter no more.
I know you can feel my tears and you don't want me to cry. My heart is broken because I can't understand why someone so precious had to die so soon. We said we were going to live together, "Always and Forever".
I pray that God will give me strength and somehow get me through as I struggle with the heartache that came when I lost you.
I Love You.
