“It was with disbelief that we learned tonight of Sam's death. Sam and I worked as young lawyers in the Attorney General's office and with our wives shared that memorable experience of expecting a first child. Susie and I treasure those wonderful times when the four of us would get together and laugh. I can hear Sam in that drawling voice telling stories about peanuts. We had such fun. After Sam and Mary Earl went to Dothan and we went to Birmingham we rarely got to see each other but when...
“To Sam's family and to Celeste - I was very sad to hear of Sam's passing. I found out this morning. Mr. Sam had been Mom's attorney and friend as long as I remember. Sam's fighting spirit in facing his illness gave my mother, Becky Orander, some fight toward the end of her own battle with Cancer. She passed this past October 27.

“I met Sam in the 90's . Had heard so many good things about his work ethics and his character. He stood tall as a leader, as a lawyer, as a kind human being. How wonderful it would be for all to be more like Sam as he was a truly great person. God bless his family and give strength and comfort to each of you in the times ahead.
“My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. I grew up across the street from this sweet family. As an only child my delight was to cross the street to play with Sam, Julia and Margaret and visit with their precious Mom.
“My heart goes out to each of the family members. I have known Sam over the last many years and I always had a great deal of respect for him. I know Sam will be missed but not forgotten.
“I just learned today of Sam's death from a dear friend in Abbeville. I was stunned. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
“Sam was one of the best friends I have ever had. My deepest sympathy for the family. I know you were his greatest treasure. I will miss him more than words can say.
So sorry to hear about Mr. Adams' death.
Larry and Peggy Teel, Wetumpka, AL
“Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the family now.
