There are no human words that can begin to express my condolences and my sorrow to Noodle and to the Charlie Shaw family. Sam made the world better by being in it! I met her in 1991, and worked with her at Shaw's Garage. I admired her sense of humor and bubbly personality! She will be missed and I am glad that I knew her!
