    Margie, (Little) Sammy, & family ,

    So sorry to hear of Sammy’s passing. You guys were always a part of my family through all my younger years. I wish we could have seen more of each other as the years went by. I will always remember the way Sammy always “picked on me” every time I came into the store. He was always trying to make somebody laugh or pull a prank. He will be greatly missed. All of you will be in my thoughts & prayers. Love to all. Elvie

    Margie,: and (L’ll) Sammy and all your family My thoughts and love are with you. Thanks for all the sweet memories I have of you all. All the times Sammy worked on the cars, dryers, and washing machines. My Mother thought he could fix anything and he almost could. He even taught me you should never put the mustard next to the cheese on a sandwich. You know my answer to that. Margie, you are one of the sweetest people I know, may God grant you many years of peace and good health. Donna and Cliff send their Love.
