Beautiful Letter From Sam

img_0186

The following letter was written by my niece, Samantha. It was a school assignment to write about someone with whom they would like to have dinner. Most of the students chose presidents or pop stars, but my niece chose me. I was surprised, honored and the letter brought tears to my eyes. Thank you, Samantha.

  4. Very touching to read. She’s a sweet young woman, and I should also note: she has great penmanship!

    Wow! Such a wonderful way of saying I love you. Tell Ann, Rocky and Roman hi from Melissa, Oliver and Gus (Rocky’s heart buddy)! Hugs.

    Sam is a gem – just like her Uncle Scott!!! Lovely letter packed with love & tnpightfulness. Scott,, this is another testament to the power of your inspiration in others..

  8. Scott-
    A truly special letter, a wonderfully warm, honest, and loving reflection. Thanks for sharing. Beautiful writing. Great perception. I understand her wish of having real conversation with her Uncle Scott, in a direct way. Luckily, I can still identify the subtle movements in your face that signal “yes” and “no”. Also, I still see your smile, in your eyes. Our life-long relationship, helps me to quickly know what you are saying. We laugh about it, but I wish we had real telekinetic powers. Right at the top of my mind. You will always be there. You are always there with us, and as you said the love stays here. It will never leave.

    Love, your brother-

    Dan
