Found it nearly two years ago on an island in northern Lake Champlain,
Vermont! We went to shore to stretch our legs while fishing for
smallmouth and decided to skip some rocks when I looked down and saw a
sam stone! I kept it, never looked it up, and carried it to Montana
with me.

I moved in with a guy named Sam and asked if he wanted the rock, which
he immediately took interest in and found your website. Now the sam
stone sits on display in our condo in Big Sky, MT; very neat concept
and ironic the fate of our sam stone.

Hi John,,,It’s been a long time since we’ve seen each other. Thank you so much for your kind words. I must tell you first that there is a sculpture garden at Thayer Academy where I teach. It was built, a sculpture in the design of a fountain was commissioned and installed, all in Jared’s memory. Here is a picture of it:

You gave me two of Sam’s stones. I put them in the earth beside the fountain after the dedication ceremony in 2007.

My exhibition, “A Father’s Kaddish” was held last year and has since closed. I’m sorry that you never noticed the announcement that went out to the group. After I did the deinstallation I assembled an online presentation of the exhibition. Here is the link. I hope you will take some time to view it. It is as close to having been in the gallery as possible: www.thepottersshop.com/a-fathers-kaddish

While we do have the wi-fi capability to Facetime or Skype in the gallery where we meet, it would not work for the filming.

I hope that we get a chance to see each other again sometime soon,
