Jo Ann.
My deepest sympathy to you, my lifelong friend. I know how well you love, and your dedicated, loyal, love of Sam. I only met him once at a DHS Reunion, and you were happy. Those memories will help you, and his love will forever be with you. Hugs and caring, Gayle

I am in shock. My heart goes out to his wife. I met Sam when I used to cut his hair at Bill's and at home. He will truly be missed. May he rest in Peace.

I do not ever remember meeting Sam but we were cousins. My father, Nick Tunanidis, and Sam's father, Ernie Tunanidas, were brothers. My deepest condolences, and may Sam's memory be eternal.

My deepest sympathy to JoAnn and the Tunanidas family...I was in shock when I received word of Sam's passing. In November 1959 Grandma Irene and I took a flight trip to Baltimore to spend a few days with Sam's family. Our visit with Uncle Ernie, Aunt Stella and their three children brought great memories. Cousin Sam was a happy, outgoing child as far as I remember. He will be sadly missed. May he rest in peace.

Dear JoAnn, my husband Carl and I are so sorry to hear of Sam's passing. He was a friend to us both. We were very fond of Sam, although we had not seen him for many, many years. Our hearts go out to you and may you feel comfort in knowing his friends will miss him and remember him always.
