I met Sam the summer before my freshman year of high school. I liked him immediately. He bounded into a party and his energy was so electric that I couldn’t help wanting to be him friend. During our freshman year, we did become friends. We became really good friends and for a couple of years he was one of my best.
We did drama together, so I got to spend a lot of time with him. Sam was one of the funniest and most talented people I knew during high school. He was (and still is) very creative and compassionate. He is a truly lovely human being and I am so glad he is in this world, and that he was such a big part of my world during high school.
