Go Rest High On That Mountain




My feisty little redheaded mama has gone on to her next adventure. This week, just 2 months shy of her 84th birthday, she left this world to be free of cancer and pain. I will miss her, but I'm happy that I spent most of the past year with her.


Everything about her was
both unique and complicated.”
~Deborah Moggach 

Sam Hill was the cool mama, Girl Scout leader, and she would do anything for her kids. Never a dull moment with her!  She was an outspoken free spirit with an attitude, who loved mini-skirts, cold beer, tight jeans, motorcycles, Camaros, and bikinis.

If you knew Sam or would like to do something in her honor, please pick one of the things she was most passionate about: plant some flowers, go shopping for cute shoes, or spend a day fishing. She'd like that and it would make me smile!


"You weren't afraid to face the devil
You were no stranger to the rain
 
Go rest high on that mountain
‘Cause your work on earth is done"
~Vince Gill
