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.

i was searching the internet to see where Sammy was and what he was doing and I found this obituary. Sammy had a great impact on my life.. If it was not for Sammy I doubt that I would be alive to this day. I gave my life to Christ at one of his concerts. It was at Gahana Christian Center in Ohio in 1976. My life has never been the same. I went on to Bible College and have

Been looking at a stack of vinyl in my workout room for a couple of weeks with Sammy's picture smiling at me. Knew him from Amway days and I'm sure like many others lost touch, but his book and vinyl lived on. As a fellow musician and new Christian there was an immediate connection. Don't know how to measure the scope of his contribution to society, just glad to have been a part of it.

I don't remember what year it was but I attended a performance of his at a church in Pensacola, Fla. When he sang "Bridge over Troubled Waters" , he walked throughout the crowd. While he was singing he looked me right in the face and tears were rolling down from his eyes. It brought tears to me also because I knew it was coming from his heart. To this day it has been my favorite song of all time. I
