Dear Jacki and family. I am so sorry for your loss. My family went to see Sammy sing in Rogersville, Tn. when i was just a small child. There was something in his music that I hadn't heard before....it changed me! He sang, "Bridge over Troubled Waters", and I'll never forget that song...or him. Be comforted in knowing how many lives were touched and changed through your ministry. God bless you and hold you during this time.

I first saw Sammy when I was about 8 yrs old at the Richmond Mosque. He changed my life forever. When I heard his testimony and saw the screen behind him showing all the hospital scenes behind him then at the end of his testimony all he said was at the end of life is death, death , death.
