    Sam and my big brother Chuck taught me all you need to know in life. I wish I had gotten to know him better. I hope he and Chuck are in heaven. I will see them when I get there.
    God bless all his family.

    I hadn’t talked to Sam in “YEARS” but we grew up together in Charlotte Park and was a “BROTHER” to me like Jeff. We hot-rodded together and thought we were having a LARGE TIME but have brought back “MANY GREAT MEMORIES” I was very saddened to hear of his passing as all the ole crew just keeps getting smaller. I “PRAY” for ALL his Family and Friends. I always called Jeff Little Tweedy and may GOD COMFORT YOU ONLY AS HE CAN. RIP my Brother
