    We loved Samantha. We know she had "issues" later in her life, But we knew her from when she came out to Lake Mattoon with her Grandmother Mary Jean. She was always smiling that great smile of hers. We last saw her at her Grandma's Memorial service and she looked good. She tried to hide her loss of Mary Jean even as she smiled when she saw us. Remember the good times and the good things about her. May the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob keep his hand over her kids, and other family. Ryans.
