Dear Adams Family,

My heart is heavy. Sammy and I had so much fun together at Winthrop University. He was a kind and gentle spirit. Always smiling and always bubbly. I will miss him. He sang in my wedding in 1986. I loved Sammy dearly even though we did not stay in touch. I will miss him and I can tell he touched a lot of lives and I am glad he touched mine. I pray for strength and peace for your family.

Dear Adams Family,

Mr. Sammy is greatly missed by three children from daycare: Isaac, Maria, and Christina Galarza. He was involved in their lives everyday and they cried so terribly at the news of his passing. Especially Isaac, who Mr. Sammy took a special interest in tutoring and assisted him to obtain three awards including A-B honor roll and most improved last year. He had started tutoring Maria. He often would fix Christina hair back in ponytail; she always took it loose at school. We so much appreciated him for how he help our family. Please accept our condolences; we do miss him in our lives so badly. You may contact us.
