Abe and Katherine were good friends of my parents, Nancy and Sandy Herzog. For decades, they spent time together in Wilmette and my parents enjoyed Abe's and Katherine's company immensely. Abe will certainly be missed - he was a kind and generous individual. Our condolences to you and your family from ours.

I first met Abe as a freshman at Rose Polytechnic Institute. He was a graduating senior. We became friends because we both were from the Chicago area. Years later I moved to Wilmette and there was Abe still with his perpetual smile. Such a nice man, he truly will be missed.

Our deepest sympathies. The neighborhood won't be the same without Abe. We knew him for over 30 years and he always had a good word, a cheery smile, and a great story to share, especially in the last few years, as he held court on his porch. The world is a little darker today. He will be truly missed.

Abe Samuels meant the world to my parents Dorothy and Frank Faulhaber. He visited our home numerous times while I was growing. Abe was very involved with the Boy Scouts with my dad in the Chicago area. My parents had Abe and Katherine to our home for dinner many times. Abe was a good friend to my uncles Rudy and Carl Faulhaber. He will be missed. He lived a good and happy live and made a real difference to the world. Joan Faulhaber Bateman Chesapeake Va

Our deepest sympathies. Our neighborhood will never be quite the same. He graced our lives for 36 years with his friendly waves , cheery demeanor, and tales from his life, never more so than during these past few years, as he held court on his porch. He will be sorely missed by all fortunate enough to have known him.
