Welcome to our Crib!

Hi everyone!

I know it has been a while since we’ve posted anything. Our family has been doing well and doing everything we can to remember Sam. A tree has been planted in our backyard in honor of her. For those of you who live nearby, you may have noticed a small light that we put in her bedroom window, which is always on, to symbolize that her light is still shining here. I am currently working on a huge scrapbook project. It’s been fun going through pictures and letters from Sam going back many, many years.

Sam loved making videos (as you’ve witnessed on this blog!) A couple years ago, she started to make her own mock version of MTV Cribs, a show in which celebrities show off the ins and outs of their incredible homes/pools/cars, etc. We filmed it in about 20 different clips, but never put them together into a real movie. Carisa and I recently came back to this project and just finished putting the video together! I wish Sam could have seen the final product, and we are so excited to show it to all of you, to help you remember Sam and how funny and amazing she was!


Here is our version of MTV Cribs, starring Sam Cipolla and her fabulous crib.

Hi you guys! What an awesome video...Sam was so creative and funny! I am sure I'll watch that video again and again...I want you to know the jersey is looking good in the lobby of the light in Sam's bedroom window, the jesey reminds us all, on a daily basis, of Sam. God bless Sam and the Cipollas. Hey Tony...look for me next year when you come to our school!

I'm on the website tonight after having seen Samantha's picture during my visit to the Highland Park Police Station today. I was really taken by the beautiful girl staring at me from the poster and I saw that she was the daughter of one of our force. I see from the comments and the eulogy that she was inspiring and a real fighter. Thank you for keeping Samantha's memories alive through her pictures and this blog for people who loved her and people like me, who didn't know of her until today. God bless Samantha and to you, her loving family.
