Uncle Sam was a great uncle to me growing up. I remember many family parties and events at his home. When I was older and living in San Francisco, Uncle Sam and I shared an interest in hypnotherapy and he made tapes for me and sent them out to San Francisco. Even though we did not get to see each other a lot due to the distance, the minute I saw Uncle Sam when back in Chicago, I instantly felt his love, his humor, his kindness. With love, Elisabeth
