The short time that i've known Sam has been beyond brilliant. I am so blessed to have met a soul like Sam and listen to him play piano and sing songs with was just beautiful. I can't wait to be able to do that again with him later on.
i love you Sammy

To the Wiggins Family - I am very saddened by your loss. I run past the cross that sits on Riverside Road almost every day & have wondered who Sam Wiggins was. I decided to look him up today and realized that we both shared something in common, that we attended Ga Southern University. I pray everyday for your family when I come across that cross on the road and use it as motivator for the remainder of my run. I know my words mean very little, since you don't know me. However, I will continue praying daily when i come across that cross.

Prayer, love and hope goes with our tears, disbelief and sorrow; Laura, Derek, and Miles. We will never forget the night our hearts broke for you. Here Comes The Sun was a bright beginning to celebrate Sam's life. Thank you for sharing the happiness he carried and gave to those he knew.
