Sam, my brother since Quail Valley 6th grade. Your friendship will forever be cherished, you were the true definition of a friend and a brother. You would always speak your mind no matter what and I loved you for that. Watch over us brother and I will continue to pray for your family and loved ones!

Sending healing prayers and comforting hugs to the Williams family. Sam was such a joy to be around and I am so saddened to hear about his passing. Sam knew my great love for my puppies and he always had sweet and kind comments to say about them when I would run into him at different places. Sam was loved and will be missed with his extended family! I know I will see him again in Heaven!

Much love to the Williams family and if there is anything you need, please let us know.

“Miss Cheryl” as Sam always called me.

What a nice young man. We were friends. He helped move me and my son's twice. Sam showed up for his friends. I am so sad but know we'll see each other in our Father's Heavenly Kingdom. I'll miss his hugs, his smile, and always respectful manners. Family, Is there anything I can do ? You are all in my prayers. May peace be with you.
