Back in the 90', I hosted Sammy and his band for a week of concerts at our local high schools. The experience impacted many young people in our town (Bakrsfield, Ca) and impacted me personally I will always remember his visit as one of the highlights of my life. I will not forget him.

I would like to say that Sammy taught me a valuable lesson when we first met in Anniston Alabama. I was a young man when God in divine intervention made our paths to cross. I still allow that lesson of accepting someone where they are in life and allow the Holy Spirit to do the changing. Sammy was the instrument God used to draw me unto himself, in order to wash me with His blood.Sammy has grandchildren in the Lord because he took time to show compassion to total stranger.

I had seen Sammy a few times in gospel concerts in Grove City, Ohio. And had not known he had passed away. His music was an inspiration to me. My husband died in 2011 of cancer. We had been married for 33 years and 4 months. My husband had been a Marine and wonderful Christian husband. We would sing duets all the time at church. My deepest condolences to the family of Sammy Hall. This is Angels4BobSeger. I am on aol

I first saw Sammy hall singers sometime in the seventies at awtrey middle school in Kennesaw or it might have been north cobb high school in Kennesaw Georgia. Wish I could remember when it was.. He had such an impact on my life. My favorite

I was in 6th grade when Sammy Hall group came to Cumming, Ga. I remember well the concert inside the old movie theater. We all showed up the next day wearing our wooden cross necklaces. Imagine that in today's society. I still have my signed photo in my memory book. I am 50 now and found myself singing a tune from so long ago. I was upset to learn in Google Sammy Hall had passed away two years ago. I

I was at one of Sammy's Concerts in Deland Fla in the early 70's. I strum a guitar, and sing a few of his songs in Church. I was hoping to meet him in person, but didn't know he went to be with the Lord in 2013. He's been away for almost two years, and I didn't know it. God Bless all who loved and worshipped with him.

I knew Sammy when he was working with the youth of America. We had Sammy in Cumberland County NC schools. A fine young man who helped many young people. R.I.P. Sammy.

I cried when I heard he had passed on. My buddies and I idolized Sammy. We were at every concert we could get to, Sammy in his white boots, white guitar. I wanted to be just like him. The songs changed me forever. I still have some of his albums somewhere. He and his sisters had such perfect harmony. We went looking and found his house with Sammy riding around the property in an old Apache truck, What a wonderful
