It was so nice to see you in Auburndale last month when you were here briefly. When I picked you up at your hotel right up the street from my house, the second you got into the car I immediately thought, then of course said, "Sam, I can't help it, part of me will always think of you as the adorable little boy cousin I remember." Voila, there you are, in the photo at the top of the blog! You're only 12 years younger than I am, but the gap is enough for me (and my fellow Linder Girls) to remember you vividly- and therefore, always think of you in some way - as that cute little, sweet mensch. Needless to say, we've watched you grow into a fine young man, and I suppose now a fine grown man, with a wonderful wife and adorable children. You're one of the Linder Girls' all-time favorite cousins and we love seeing you. So Congratulations on turning the YOUNG age of 40!!!
Love, Janet and family
