I will always remember Sam. He was a big influence in my life He was one of my mentors, and I was one of his students - from his Old Testament Survey Class, his New Testament Survey Class, his speech class, his Sunday morning Bible Studies, and of course his Sunday morning sermons.
I appreciated his sense of humor. I remember when I first started giving communion and offering meditations. I was quite nervous being up in front of people. One Sunday, I decided to put a little humor in my offering meditaion. I wasn't sure I should do it because I didn't know how it would go over. But I decided to go ahead with it. Sam gave a big hearty laugh, and that was all I needed. It helped me relax and feel more confident from then on.
Sam accomplished much in his life. Yet he remained a humble, faithful servant of Jesus Christ. I will miss him.
I am so sorry for your loss. I will always remember Sam. Without Southwest Christian Church and Sam's teaching I may have never learned about Jesus when I was a teenager many years ago. He taught me so much! I live in Dallas and just googled him today to see if he had written any books, because his bible studies were so in depth, and found out of his passing. God bless you Nadine and all you're family with peace. I will look forward to seeing Sam again when I go to our glorious home!
I knew Sam Reed only as Kenny's dad. Kenny and I were freshmen at Dallas Christian College. I believe it takes a fine man to raise a fine son. Sam Reed surely was a fine man. My thoughts and prayers are with the Reed family at this time of loss.
He was always full of surprises. With fondest memories and earnest prayers that a portion of the peaceful rest he now enjoys will bless you too.

So sorry for your lose, Sam was a very good man. I enjoyed his sermons when I was going to Southwest Christian Church when I was young.
