    Mrs. Wanda and Bro. Charles,

    I am deeply sorry for your loss. Mr. Sam was a thoughtful and kind person. He always testified that there is a Christ who covers us with his grace. Whenever I would see he and Mrs. Wanda at Sam’s club or the flea market they were always enjoying each other’s company. God speed Mr. Sam

    Uncle Sam, you were like a father to us. You will be so greatly missed. Have fun with my dad, brother and Aunt Joanie, they have been waiting for you. I will never forget you holding court and all of us kids being the defendants.. many — so many good memories of you. You were such a big part of our lives. All of us kids will remain in contact because of the relationship our parents laid a foundation for. Have fun in heaven. We will see you again.
