When it was announced that Sam was leaving the Wiggles because Greg was coming back, Kobe was so upset. He cried all morning as he looked at the newspaper and kept asking why Sam was leaving. I blogged about it before Aaron passed away, and didn't think about it again, until the day of Aaron's funeral.
I got home and checked my email later in the day, and there was a comment on my blog post about it. It said the comment was from 'Sam', and sounded like it was from him, but I totally thought it was a joke or someone trying to be nice and making it sound like it was from Sam, but then I thought why would someone joke like that, especially on the day of Aaron's funeral. I didn't even tell Kobe about it as I really thought there was no way that Sam would read my blog, OR would post a comment.
Sam said that he would always be the yellow wiggle on the DVDs that Kobe loved to watch and any time he wanted to see him, all he had to do was put on a DVD.

A day or two later I saw a comment on one of my Facebook pages from a lovely lady called Nerissa, asking if I had seen the message from Sam. She then said that she had been able to arrange it, by going onto Sam's Facebook page and telling him about us. I went to his page and found the thread and couldn't believe that she had done something so lovely, and especially couldn't believe that Sam was so kind, to send Kobe a personal message.
Now whenever we talk about Sam, or he tells someone about the Wiggles he says 'when I'm sad and miss Sam I can just watch him on a DVD'.
Thank you Nerissa for your kindness and thank you Sam (if you ever read this:) for making a very hard day so much brighter for all of us.
