  1. My Dearest Sammy (a Brother I never had),
    What a good Looking man! i would say good Looks runs in the family but I know your Brother Bill. We shared many a glass of ice tea at Pam’s table. I even loved you enough to share my Dr Pepper ( I didn’t do that with many people.). You astounded me with stories and anecdotes, Im not sure were all true, but because you told me I believed you. The epitome of an “Aggie” and all that entails I completely understand why your family and myself looked up to you. You kept us warm with firewood deliveries and will keep us cozy with warm memories. I know our Aggies will have a special angel to help guide them on gameday. You, my dear sir, were a pleasure to know. Love to the Parks Family

  2. Sammy was such a good man who will be missed by all who knew him. My prayers are lifted for his family and friends.
