  • Hele s helping hands and our residents send our deepest sympathy to Sammy’s family. My you find comfort within each other during this time of grief. I would also like to attest to the talents Sammy displayed. He was such a charmer and loved to bless us with his musical gift at many cookout that we had or he would just brake out in song during our gathering times. He always had a smile to give and tell you how much he loves you. He also had beautiful penmanship just like his lovely mother. He will be greatly missed. May your family rally around each other and remember the good times Sammy gave. Again our deepest condolences.
