    Our heart-felt sympathy to the entire family. What a great family! The Sampson family devoted/dedicated their
    lives to the Belview Community, and surrounding area. They are icons, of what “small-town” America
    is all about. Many, many memories of growing up in the Belview area, and the Sampson family is a big
    part of those memories, especially the Hardware Store, and the conversations. The wonderful memories, and conversations with friends, of your loved ones, and yourselves, are the best “healers” in these difficult times. They comfort you, and help to ease the sorrow.
