I went to a Sammy Hall concert in the 70's at Lanett High School. I still have the paper he gave to all that committed their life to Christ that night. I found it recently while looking through some papers. I was looking for information about when he toured in Lanett and that's how I came upon this website. I wonder how many others Sammy helped to turn their lives around and follow Jesus:). Thank you Sammy!

I saw Sammy at an amway convention in the late 70's at age 19. His lyrics to 'love hurts' changed my life. It's now 2018 and just found he passed. Thank you Sammy, you touched many lives.

I saw Sammy numerous times at Amway functions. I was shocked to see his Obituary. What an inspiring human. He will be sorely missed by all who was once in his company.

I saw Sammy once at an Amway rally and was so touched that I have thought of his music many times throughout the years since. However, I had forgotten his name until recently when I found an old cassette cover I had kept in my "treasure box". I did a Google search and relived some of the beloved songs. So sad to find out that he has passed. He truly leaves a legacy of so many lives changed. Thank you, Sammy!

It's now 2017 and I just learned of Sammy's passing. I don't know if you will see this Jackie or if you remember me. I brought you to Morrisville NY about 1969 or 70. It was one of the highlights of my life and it had a profound affect on that small community. I hope you are well. I will remember Sammy and you forever.
