The first time I met Sammy & Jackie was on a family trip to Tennessee to watch my brother in law play football. I felt so welcomed and part of the family. Im so thankful for the memories of that weekend when we all piled in the car and went to the game, sitting on the back porch in the morning admiring the beautiful view, & going to cracker barrel for dinner. Im blessed to have met Sammy, and my prayers are with you, Jacki, and the family.
Sincerely, Monica & Doug Rissler

I remember going to Sammy's house in the summers when I visited my Aunt Cathy & Uncle Gary Smith (they lived next door) or when he would come down to Cleveland, TN to visit my Aunt Jerrell & Uncle Jerry Glover because they all sold Amway together. . Sammy was always great to us, always had a smile and always had a new album for us!!! My favorite song is "Never Been To Heaven" and know Sammy can say he

Where to begin?? To Jacki and the family, Years and years ago when you came into our lives, we knew that God just knits some people to our hearts. Sammy and Jacki and kids have found that special place only God can put there and reserved for treasured friends. From building a guitar shaped pool to canning peaches, to waxing floors, to on stage with Sammy, to many times together we came to love y'all. Praise God for allowing Earl

When I got saved I received a book that Sammy wrote "Hooked on a good thing" I still have that book and will cherrish it for the rest of my life. I met Sammy back in 1998 and told him I received his book as a gift and then he signed it for me. Thanks Sammy and my prayers go to your family at this time.

So sorry to hear about this loss! 38 years ago in a high school gym in Reidsville, NC, the Lord used the words of Sammy Hall to bring me to a place of readiness and acceptance of the Lord Jesus Christ as the Lord of my life. I still remember the song he sang. Changed my life forever, for sure! Praying for the family!

Just got the news that Sammy Hall died. I truly wish that I could come to the funeral to pay me respects. In something like 1976 the Sammy Hall singers played a concert at the Reidsville NC high school. I went to that concert. I gave my life the Jesus that night. My life was changed forever. I know that it was the Holy Spirit and that Sammy Hall was just the instrument. But, when I get to heaven I'm gonna be looking for Sammy to say thanks. His was a life well lived. Good job!

Fear Jacki and Family,
I am so sorry for your loss, I pray that God comforts you in this time. I remember when Sammy came to our church in Greensboro,N.C.(Brightwood Baptist) many years ago. I was touched by his testimony, and his singing for the Lord. Sometime ago, in your home, I attended a Monavie meeting that you all hosted. That night, I was able to tell Sammy what a blessing his testimony was to me, and that many years

God gained another angel this week. I meet Sammy back in the 70's, our church had him several times and each service was standing room only, even when we moved to a bigger place, people were still standing. My mom and dad are probably greeting him into heaven along with my mom's sister this past week. God bless your family during this time.

I know heaven has gained a great man of God. I was truly blessed back in the early 70's under Sammy's ministry. My prayers are with the family.
