Sam Weller was my friend. Many Friday mornings I sat next to him at The Egg and I (now the Epic Egg) as he ate biscuits and gravy with the Romeos (Retired Old Men Eating Out) from First Congregational Church. We had a connection that we often spoken of: we had both lived in Billings, Montana. I moved there in the mid-60's to attend Rocky Mountain College. After graduating in 1976,, I taught American History and Government at Senior High and West High there in Billings until I left to attend seminary in 1985. We talked about Billings some, and then found a lot of other things to share. We became friends, and I always looked forward to seeing him at the breakfast gatherings. At some point, he stopped coming on Fridays. I asked if anyone knew anything about him, but only heard that he might be tending to his wife who was not well. Then the pandemic came upon us and the group didn't meet for four or five months. I could have made a phone call or checked on him in some other way, but I did not. I really regret that, I really liked Sam and he brought joy to my life. I have missed him for some time and will continue to do so. He was truly one of the good guys.

The minute Sam came into our family, he was like breath of calm air. He had a deep, quiet spirit.

To see he and Jan together through their years of marriage was beautiful to watch. Sam had a keen sense of humor and it never more evident than the thrill on his face when Jerry gave him his mullet hat. He wore it with pride and a smile. I was afraid he was going to wear it at John's wedding!

He will be truly missed by us all and we send love to Jan, Kay, John and families. He was a great husband, father and grandfather. We will miss him.
