To date, Sam still remembers his late brother whose initials he has carved on his wristband.

I can still remember November 11, 2015, like it was yesterday.” Hartman got emotional talking about his brother.
However, with faith, Sam grew stronger and started seeing things differently.
“But one thing that did help me was my faith. My brother and I both came across the Bible verse Ecclesiastes 3:1-15, and it spoke to both of us. I shared it with my mom, and my brother even got a tattoo of it.”
Demitri was a pure soul, and so is Sam. He remembers his brother to date, and with trust in god and Christianity, Hartman moves forward.
