Samuel Emil Blum.
My father, Sam, was born on this day 93 years ago. He was born in the Bronx but raised in Stelton, New Jersey. He lived a long and full life that included events, achievements, failures, friends, and experiences that mark all of our lives. He was exceptional in his modesty and fun to be around. I was lucky to have him more as a friend than as a parent for the past thirty-five years.
