Home for Life has lost a great friend with the death of Herb Sam the Spiritual Advisor to the Mille Lac Band of Ojibwe. Many of you might remember Herb from our annual Memorial Garden Ceremonies and Open Houses, at which he officiated. It is a huge loss to the community, Home for Life and for his family, his beloved wife and my friend Patty Sam and daughter Arianna. People like Herb are so rare in this world, and their loss leaves a huge hole in the lives of so many. Patty we will be with you tomorrow at the ceremony for Herb.

We were so proud to have, Herb be a part of our public television production "Soul Creatures" and you can see him and hear his beautiful words of wisdom here: http://homeforlife.org/tpt2-and-home-life-soul-creatures
