I know your not in anymore pain cuz and we all know you were in pain everyday every minute but you won't have no more pain. Nothing but pure happiness and peace now. Give my mom brother and Beth hugs for me and give granny a big long hug and kiss for me. Watch over us that are still left here. Keep guiding Jasmine and Braden. Your were the best dad to them two beautiful and deserving kids of yours and Brandy's. Until we meet again cuz and don't throw to many redneck parties up there before we make it up. Your memory will never fade from the lives you've touched and the ppl who love you. Make sure you've got me a big ole nice ass mud truck waiting for when I come home. Get the mud hole right and all the toys ready. Don't have to much fun in that mud hole tho without me and Copenhagen. You know you can't have too much fun without me and her love you cuz another one gone too soon too young he keeps taking all the good ones. Peace and love I'm so sorry to Brandy, Calvin, Dwayne, and Johnny and also Jasmine and Braden God please be with the kids and Brandy

I met Sammy thru our local Hot Wheels Collectors club and right off the bat we became friends and showed our love for the little Diecast cars. He was always there to lend a hand, give some great info or show his latest find. Willing to volunteer for any event that helped kids and donated thousands of toy cars for kids that wanted to play. What a great guy and an Awesome friend. You will be surly missed, Prez. My heart is broken for your family. R.I.P. Sambo..
