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

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
