Samantha's Family

Cristina Welch, Samantha's Cousin

Sam has always had a special place in my heart and always will. Being her oldest female cousin we were so close.

One of the many memories I have of Sam was the year we went to the beach with my mom, my twins, Jonna, and her. We were there for a short 3 days but it was a fantastic 3 days. I remember laying on the beach with her getting a tan talking about life and her future and what all it held. She would always tell me that she looked up to me that I was a wonderful mother and an amazing woman. I remember telling her that day to keep her head focused in school and worry about boys later. She would laugh and say yea right! While we were down there we all went to the water park. I remember acting like a child and being silly with her. We would race down the water slides to see who would get to the end first. There was one night there we called it "girls night out," her and I ventured out alone from our moms and my boys and decided to play miniature golf. Needless to say I tried to cheat to beat her and she still beat me. After that we enjoyed some ice cream and headed back to the condo. It was so much fun just laughing and being silly with her.

She was such a great person inside and out. She would always know what to say to make my day turn from gloomy to sunny. I remember when I asked her to be a bridesmaid in my wedding. She was so ecstatic - she couldn't wait to pick out her dress. Samantha will always be a part of my life; she was a ray of sunshine that would light up the room. She will greatly be missed.
