I'm so sad to share the news that early this morning, Thursday April 11, Sam passed away. His skull flap replacement surgery was successful, but shortly after he developed a very rarely seen complication and was unable to recover from it. We are devastated by the loss, but Sam was calm and at peace the entire time. Many friends came to say goodbye and surround Sam with beautiful stories and memories. I was with Sam until the very end, and beyond.
Sam, the universe made a mold for you and broke it the moment you were born. There is no one else like you, never has been and never will be. Our lives now have a physical hole, but you are ever more present in our hearts and minds today and every day beyond.
Thank you so, so very much for all of your support during the past 5 months. We couldn't have made it through all of this without you and your amazingly generous support.
With deep love,
