In Memory of Sam

All our lives have been touched by little Sam, a beautiful child that brought such joy to all those around him.

Anyone who has treasured a child as part of their lives will understand the overwhelming sadness and loss at the news of Sam’s death and the tragic circumstances.

Sam brought a community together and reminded us of our better selves. He is deeply missed by all staff of the Association of Western Australia who loved his cheeky smile and fetching ways.  

Thank you Sam for the many gifts you left with us in your short life. You will live on in all our hearts and our memories.
