Thank You, Sam

 

continued

P.S., No, our son, Samuel Henry Hunt, born in 1979, now a translator (German, Czech, and Slovak to English in Germany), was NOT named after Sam Breck - rather after two great-grandfathers, the Texas railroad stationmaster Sam Hunt and the German immigrant tailor, Henry Hoffmann, of Carrollton, Missouri, and before that of impoverished Bisterschied in the Rhineland (not far from Kaiserslautern but at least 500 feet above it, on a cold and infertile plateau).

But it didn't hurt that the name "Sam" had such positive vibes in our experienced lifetimes.    (end of article)
