It brought tears to my eyes to see this on Facebook today. I knew Sam when he attended Cross Road road Baptist as a child. Rest in peace sweet boy.

I literally just found out about Sam, and it's truly heartbreaking. I knew him for about four years while at the ADG, and he was the same nice, friendly and genuine guy on a day-to-day basis. That can be a rarity nowadays, but Sam was truly that kind of a person. My prayers and condolences are certainly with the family. Rest in love my friend!

I worked with Sam at the Herald at A-State. He was always such a genuinely nice guy. I have enjoyed watching him through social media since college and seeing the joy that being a husband and father brought him. I’m shocked and saddened he is gone so soon. I know he will be missed by so many. Many prayers for his wife, kids, dad, and friends.

I’m sure Chris and Dad(Leroy) were waiting to greet him in Heaven.
Sending prayers for strength during this time and the days to come.

Sam, This is so surreal. You and I talked almost every day, mostly by text but I consider you to be one of my closest friends in this world. You are my tag-team partner. I cannot believe you are gone. I've told Jacqueline so much about you. She knows you were a Godly man and that we will see you again one day.

Much love to your family, especially Alyssa and the girls. We are praying so hard for you all.

Love ya, brother. Be waiting on the hot tag!
