Dear family of Sam Lichter,
During my years at Beth Tfiloh, Sam and I had an easy connection. With his ever present smile and soulful personality, we always shared sweet and warm times, whether the conversation was lengthy or brief. For all the people who felt awkward with or around others, Sam made up for all the them by being the King of the People Persons. He made it look very easy. I will miss the possibility of seeing him again, and extend my condolences to all of you. He was a prince, an angel, a mench and a faithful Jew. May Sam rest in peace as you all rest assured of his place Above.
Shabbat shalom,
Elan Adler

My sincerest condolences on your loss. Dr. Sam was so kind to us and my father when he was slowly dying of cancer in the 1980s. We lived at 2913 E. Baltimore. It was so nice to have a pharmacist who was I think better than the doctors my dad had.I know Block's pharmacy is no longer, but it was the lifeblood of the neighborhood, and Dr. Sam was a big part of it. He even came to my dad's viewing.Blessings
