Sammie was a gentle man. He spoke soft words that had huge meaning. He was also a very spiritual man. A quality that he didn't have to verbalize, you saw it in the way he spoke and lived. He will truly be missed. Mr. Dent and I would like to thank

To Mike and and family I offer my heartfelt Condolences: and to the entire Dent family as we mourn the loss of uncle Sammie, I thank God for the time I was able to spend with him every week during the United Male Chorus rehearsals. Our chats about his love for family and just life in general will forever be among my fondest memories of Uncle Sammie and the Dent family. Love to all.

Praying for the family of Mr.Dent i didnt know him personally but remembered him singing with the male choir. May you find comfort in knowing he is now singing in the heavenly choir and gone to receive what God promised Eternal Life.
