In Loving Memory of Samantha McLerran

Samantha, you left us with great memories. Your love is still with us and though we can’t see you, you are always in our hearts. Your life was a blessing. All your memories are a treasure. You are loved beyond words and you are missed beyond measure. Our family chain was broken and nothing seems the same. But God will call us one by one and the family chain will link again. I love you Samantha with all my heart and I miss you so much.
