My heart was sadden when I heard of Mr. Sammie passing. I worked with him at Wal-Mart 1353 for some years and got to know him well we became good friends and would talk every morning when I came to work and he was getting off. He would always greet me with a smile and a hug and he would always ask me are you good. I'm going to miss my friend but he is now in a better place and at peace. Love You Mr. Sammie
