  2. Dear Jon and Cathy and Family, I am saddened to hear of Dr. Sam’s passing. My mom Joy(Gallone) and I enjoyed so many wonderful years being part of the Broad Ave. office family. I particularly remain blessed to have been able to care for your 3 beautiful boys and be part of your family life for so long during my high school and early college years. I pray your whole family will be comforted by all the memories you will keep of such fine parents and family bonds. Shalom, Gail Gallone Myers

  4. Andy and I are so saddened to learn of Sam’s passing. Although we did not know each other at the time, Andy and I first met Sam in 1964. A dear sweet man, a caring and thoughtful man, and then a great medical Dr. So many memories of a wonderful relationship with the Shapiro family. May he rest in peace. Our thoughts and condolences go out to the entire family. Cindy and Andy Kestenbaum

  5. Dr. Shapiro was a kind and caring man and physician. He treated me and my entire family for most of my life with humor, kindness and guidance you could not ignore. We would all be blessed to be equally loved and remembered.

  6. Sam was the best, most caring doctor I have ever known. Haven’t met any like him since I left Leonia in 1992. My condolences to his family. He lived a good, long life.
