  1. Few of us are still here to remember what a great contribution the Marie Family made to the Kanawha Valley. Sam, the patriarch of the family, had a winning smile and a warm disposition for everyone. The world needs more Sam Maries. He was an exceptionally good man.

  2. Our condolences for your loss, Sam and your family are in our prayers.
