From the Sarpong Family Tuesday November 3, 2015. We would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to each and every one of you who have reached out to us during this incredibly difficult time. Our hearts are broken, and we are struggling to come to terms with the untimely passing of our dear Sam. Your words of encouragement, prayers, and shared memories of Sam have been comforting for us, and we cannot thank you enough. As you might imagine—we are overwhelmed at this time. While we have not been able to respond to every offer for support just yet, we will do our best to keep you updated through our family statements.
We have heard from several people who want to celebrate in memory of Sam. While we appreciate that thought, for us it is too soon for that. We want to concentrate our energies on sending Sam off in the very special way that his life deserves. We are currently planning a public funeral—one that will accommodate the many people who expressed interest in attending. Sam was fortunate to have so many friends from all over the world, and we want to provide the opportunity for everyone to attend his funeral services.
