I knew Sam for many years through Alabama Power. He was such a good friend to many of us. Please know that there are prayers of many APC employees being raised for Sam, Judy, and all of his family.

Mr. Mays was a "class act". I have never known him to have ever had a bad word to say about anybody or anything. I admired the way he was always so calm. He was always willing to help no matter how exhausted he probably was. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have known him. Love and sympathy to all. With our love, Patrick and Kathy
