Letter to the Editor
Paying Tribute to Sam

To the editor:

I would like to take this opportunity to pay tribute to Sam Naomi. I only briefly met Sam a week ago, while training with K9 Heky.

I spoke with him on the phone at other times on previous occasions. Our conversations were always about K9 Heky. What nobody knows, except for a couple of people within the office, Sam was purchasing dog food for K9 Heky. It was something he and his wife wanted to do.

At first I thought it was a one-time thing, which was very much appreciated. Then one day my phone rang, it was Sam. He wanted to know if Heky was out of food yet. I told him I just picked up a bag. He told me he would be purchasing Heky's food from now on, little did I know he had made previous arrangements to have the bill sent to him each time.

Unfortunately I didn't get to know Sam very long. I do feel fortunate for the short time I did get to know him. I appreciate very much his support.

I've had tremendous support from everyone in the community but wanted to let [Page 4] everyone know what Sam insisted on doing behind the scenes for our community and K9 program. Our community has lost a very special person. As a fellow veteran, we had a common bond. I know Sam was there for others as well, I've ben told so.

Thank you to Sam Naomi and his wife.

Heky, AKA The Hekster,

Department
