Sammy had a good heart! I haven't seen him in a long time & I hate that I'll never be able to see him again in this lifetime. We had some good times together... God bless you all!

We want to express our deepest condolences over the loss of "Sambo". There will never be another one like him and we're sure he will keep our Lord Jesus Christ and all his Saints entertained! :) May he rest in peace and we pray for strength and comfort for all his family through their time of grief and sorrow.

Sammy it's been a little over two weeks now, and boy I miss you so much. I can't even emgine having to go home to mommas now and not seeing you as soon as I pull into her drive because you were always out side doing this or that. You could never stand to be inside very long at a time. Your were a sweet brother and I have so many good memories of us all growing up together. I'm so thankful that I heard you make peace with GOD before he took you home, that's the only thing that makes this bareable just to know that one day we can all be together again. I know you are in heaven now just running as fast as you can to see everything. Just keep a watch for all of your brothers and sisters and for momma, We will miss you and think about you everyday until we are all together once. again. You were truly loved by lots of people. You would have been proud. But at the same time you would have said to us all don't spend all that money on me. I love you big brother. Lil Sister

Sammy it's been a little over two weeks now and boy how I do miss you. You were a great brother with lots of love in your heart for all us. I can not emagine how I am going to feel now going home to mommas and not seeing you as I pull into the drive, You were always outside just doing this or that. I know one day tho I will see you again, I know you made peace wiht GOD and that makes this a little more bareable for all of us. With love my sweet brother we will always miss you. I know you are one of the funniest angels in heaven today.
