I began talking to Sam 6 years ago on the internet and met him and Greg when I moved to San Francisco 2 years ago and few more times after, the last time being at the Deco on Larkin Street on 'cuda night which also was where I decided to go out for my birthday. It was an amazing night and I'm glad Sam convinced me to come out.
Rest In Peace dear friend. It was a pleasure to talk to you and meet you in person in this very brief life. You will never be forgotten.
My heart goes out to his partner Greg Kerr and to their families. BIG STRONG HUGS and much love. I am very sorry for your loss.
