Sam a beautiful little man ...

Sam arrived quietly, with no fuss and I have to say ... there was no turning back.   He had landed in the right place at the right time and was definitely with the right people.   I often thought of this, over the time he's been with us as it was very seamless and beautiful.   It has always just felt right to have him along.

Having known older brother Toby and Mum and Dad and John and Granny Sue and ... getting to know little sister Violet too ... you've been the treat Sam, that brought them all into our lives in 2012.

One thing I've found really strong in you as a quality, is that I can count on you.   You are really loyal and dependable, and it helps create a feeling of things being safe for everyone in our little gang.  When you'd ask something or find out how something was done ... that was it, you'd get it and be happy to do so and to pass it on to others, anytime needed.

You'd take things in with great wonder and delight, have a great sense of humour and really love the same in others.  I can hear you laughing now as I write.

Guinea pig cuddles with you were always a treat ... you love them and we'd always find they'd just chill in your lap like they'd landed in a really good nest.

Luca, Anna, Sonny and Alessia looked up to you ... while you're the middle child in your family, with us you were a bit like a big brother, helpful, kind and lots of fun too .. Whether it was a great hike, or gentle play, climbing a tree or watching a bug, everything we did was of interest to you and in amongst it all you'd also make us laugh.

 I'd have to say my theme song for you is ... 'Easy ... easy like sunday morning (though we were always on a thursday) ... as that's how you've been ... a very easy companion to have along ... and an easy friend to love.

You've got a heart full of love for your family Sam and we wish ever so well for next year.   We'll miss you and send you off with our love ... goodbye Sam ...
