Samantha always lived in the moment taking in the joy of the world, she preferred a simple but sentimental life and home. Sam was a very social person who radiated love, light, and happiness, making her presence comforting. Some would say she was even cute when she was mad due to her small stature and size. Sam was always empathetic and kind, treating everyone as equals, and never leaving anyone behind. She was a trusted secret keeper and shoulder to lean on during the darkest times of people’s lives. Sam was often seen gravitating towards animals and trying to adopt every stray she saw. Her hobbies included hiking, fishing with family, and photography. She found peace visiting her Aunty Aly in Maine.
The most important people in Samantha’s life were her mom and her siblings. The big sister role was incredibly important to her as she looked out for her younger sister and brother with a keen, caring eye. Sam’s friends, including her feline friends, meant so much to her as well. She will be most remembered for being a sweet, caring person who would always lend a helping hand to anyone and of course, her infectious laugh.
