Ms. Farrow & Family,
I am sorry to hear of your loss of Mr. Sammie. Kathy and I offer you our sincerest condolences. Mr. Sammie was a good man of whom I have many fond memories. Being around the courthouse when working with CCSO I had the pleasure of seeing Mr. Sammie daily. He always had a smile and a warm greeting. He will be missed by this community he served compassionately and honorably always ready to help if he could. Faith and time will help with the healing process from such a loss. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.
