  3. My Uncle Sam was the 'coolest'. We would always share a laugh whenever he spoke. He could make me laugh like nothing and I would often return the favor. Our family is witty anyway, but I think that I got my quick-wit from my uncle.

    I am so glad that he is not in any more pain, but only wish that I could have had just a few more laughs with him. He will thoughtfully remembered and sadly missed.

    Much love to Adria, Vicki and Bobby Shawn and the rest of the Sam Betton clan.

    Love,

    Camille

    One of the most beautiful things about having a personal relationship with God is that we know He allows the ills of this life to crumble away until the gold inside us shines through. Those of us now left behind will have a spot of gold to remember when thoughts of you touch our hearts. Cousin Sam, Rest in Peace.

  19. Sam was a blessing. His quiet presence and his pleasant smile will always be a part of me.
    I know you will miss him. My prayer are for the entire family.

    Love, Sister Vicky Talley

  20. We will never forget Sam and the way he lived his life in a calm and dignified manner. You always had time to listen and bring a quiet to any storm. I thank you for the love you had for mother Gladys, my sister Debra and for me and Carla. I also cherish the time we talked about and listen to jazz. While most teens were dancing to whatever was top on the charts, you were introducing me to Miles and Coltrane. I thank you for that and for all you meant to me and our family. We will miss you tremendously.
    Love, Danny and Carla
