    Uncle Sam was a dear sweet man with a wonderful sense of humor and a man who loved and cared deeply for his family. I loved our phone conversations. We will miss him so much.

    As one of Sam and Lawana’s caregivers, I had many opportunities to hear his stories and memories. As I listened to the grandchildren tell their memories, I was blessed to hear many of those same stories. Please know those stories were just as important, and loving memories to him as well! It always warmed my heart when one of “the boys” would call. I always knew (not by listening in) but by the happy in Sam’s voice and always the “love you” at the end. Sam was so proud and loved each and every one of you! And I know you were proud of him. And we all loved him

    Sam Sarrett was one of the kindest men I ever knew. I am blessed to have had him and sweet Lawana as neighbors since 2005. He and I would “race” each Sunday to see who could get the newspaper to the other one first! He never missed an opportunity to pet and talk to my little dog, Nikita, and she loved him. Sam loves Our Lord, and while I miss him, I’m thankful he is in His Glory forever!!
