Our hearts are full from all the love and grief we feel with the loss of our beloved Sampson. His message would be that he had a good, full life and gave and received lots of love. Cancer is what took him away but what gave him life was his curiosity, ornery ways (especially to dogs), mousing abilities, social network in the woods behind the house, daring ways nose to nose with wood rats and his wonderful healing powers. He could lay near whoever was sick and heal them. Sampson you will be missed but it won't be a surprise to see you in our dreams. We love you "Coolio, Cool Cat, Coolest Cat in Town, Sampsy, and of course Sampson."
