My heart goes out to the Anderson family. Sam was one of a kind and his laughter, smile and ability to tell a story will be remembered by anyone lucky enough to spend time with him. He will be missed by many.

I am saddened to hear of Sam's passing. I have many wonderful memories of 21st street in Sea Island and the special times that I spent there with the whole Anderson family. I always looked forward to July to spend time with the whole family, our parents and all of the children.
Mr. Anderson, my thoughts and prayers are with you at this very difficult time. I will pray for your peace.
With love,
