It seems as if a part of my heart has gone with Sam. Although I met him only once in 2000 he stayed with me and I hoped somehow I might have remained with him. Now he sails a larger sea than we have yet dreamed. It is for us to know there is NO DEATH so long as love remembers. Sam, little boy of my heart, I will never forget you. With sorrow and fond regards to Tom and Terri.

I have worked with Terry for a few years on and off. I cannot possibly imagine the heart ache that goes along with the death of a son. Please don't ever forget that his love and spirit will always be with you, and he will find happiness in heaven.

Sam met my daughter,Dayna at the Marsh Restaurant. We invited him for a weekend at a cottage. I remember dad reminding Sam to "be a gentleman". Well he is a sweet,nice kid. Dayna has since moved to SC. We are both so saddened by his passing. He will always have a special place in our hearts.

Matthew 5:4 says, "Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted." During this difficult time may you lean on your love for the Lord to guide you and strengthen you. 2 Samuel 22:2, "The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer." May you take refuge in him. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Janet & John Kunde left a message on June 22, 2009:
DASH - I read of a reverend who stood to speak at the funeral of a friend. He referred to the dates on his tombstone from the beginning to the end. He noted that first was the date of his birth and he spoke of the following date with tears. But he said what mattered most of all was the dash between those years. For that dash represents all of the time that he spent on earth and now only those who knew him know what that line is worth. For is matters not how much we own the car, the house, the cash. What matters is how we lived and loved and how we spent our dash. So think of this long and hard are there things you'd like to change? For you never know how much time is left (you could be at dash mid-range). If we could just slow down enough to consider what's true and real, and always try to understand the way other people feel. And be less quick to anger, and show appreciation more, and love the people in our lives like we've never loved before. If we treat each other with respect and more often wear a smile. Remembering that this little dash might last just a little while. So when your eulogy is being read, with your life's actions to rehash. Would you be pleased with the things they say, about how you spent your dash? Thinking of you all in this difficult time...Hugs, Janet (Zeinert)

Dear Terri, Tom and Family, It seems like a lifetime ago we talking about our kids at Charter School and then it seems like just yesterday. I can't imagine your pain and that of your family right now. I pray that God gives all of you the strength to endure, peace to comfort, and shows you the love and friendship of many that you can lean on during this difficult time. Isaiah 66:13 Love and Friendship, Matt, Lynn, Chris, Kyle & Madelyn Fellinger

Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Dear Terri and Goudy family, My heart is so sad for you and your beautiful family. I have many fond memories of Sam when he was younger at Classical School and of all the boys actually and your beautiful little girl Christiana. Terri I keep thinking about how much you cared about your family, you were always there for each boy and helped whenever needed. There are not words that can be of enough comfort at this time but I am so sorry for your loss. It is evident to me that many people cared for Sam and that he deeply touched many in his too short life. I know all his teachers remember him and your family fondly. Again I am so sorry for your loss. Kari Campshure

Rebecca Finch left a message on June 20, 2009:
Sam, I first met you when I was dating Steven Bouwer. I always thought you were the cutest and the sweetest boy I've ever met. Anytime I needed a friend, you always offered a helping hand. Over the years, we didn't hang out that much, but every time I'd run into you, you would get this big smile on your face and in the funniest voices you would greet me. I will definitely miss that. You had a very big heart. You were an amazing brother to Phil, Andy, and your little sister. I'll keep an eye on Phil, as I have grown very fond of him over this last year at school. Sam, all the memories I have of you will be cherished. I don't look at you as being gone... you just went away for a little while. When I see you again someday, I know you will look at me with a big smile and greet me with a very funny accent. Until then, I love you. Talk to you later, Sam.
