I am so sorry to hear about Sammy's passing. He is now with our father and for sure in a better place. I have not seen him in a while but I remember him as a special soft spoken christian man. Peggy, I will be praying that the Lord will give you the strength to hold your head up high until you see him again in heaven.

We were saddened to hear of Sammy's passing. He worked with my Daddy as an electrician back in his young days. As a young boy I worked with them also. I remember well when he got drafted and went off to Vietnam, then when he was discharged and came back to work.

He and his family were salt of the earth folks. We knew his folks Mr. Sam and Mrs. Lois they all lived in Saint Charles a small community just a hop skip and jump from us and we often attended church together. We didn't get to see them much anymore, usually at a Yeager family funeral we would get to talk.

We ask God's blessing on his family at this time.
