Texas Good Sam
This eternal flame burns forever
in their remembrance –
This page is dedicated to those Good Sam members who were once amongst us but are no more. They have progressed from these earthly Chapters to be immortalized forever as members of the “Texas Good Sam Everlasting Chapter.” Each year at the Texas RV Rally a Memorial Service is held to honor those who have passed on since the previous Memorial Service. This is a joint endeavor between the State Chaplain and Second Chance Sams.
Though gone, they are not forgotten.
Though absent, they remain in spirit.
Though once workers, they now rest.
Rose Mary Hollis
Along life’s road they did wander,
Then came a day when they were no longer.
They’d wandered East, they’d ventured West,
Knowing down the highway lay their quest.
In memory of them we have lit this flame.
Eternally it glows in their dear names.
They now become members of the Everlasting Chapter,
To be enshrined forever, and forever after.
We owe them all a debt of gratitude
For they taught us the meaning of solitude.
They knew joy with a graceful manner,
And always, always – they were faithful ‘Good Sammer’s’.
In 2001 the Texas Good Sam Chapters created a memorial book in which the names of all past, deceased members are included. This book is available for viewing at each Samboree. The list for the year 2000 and later are complete and we are working to fill-in past years.
Names of individuals from past years or for the current year should be submitted by your chapter secretary.
