I'll never forget any memory I shared with you, but one memory that always sticks out for me is when Roy and I ran out of gas in Anniston or Oxford and the only person that came and helped us out was you. You were always there to bring me to work or help Roy and I out anyway you could. My favorite memory of you, though, was when you picked me up at the Edwardsville store to bring me home and we ran into your daughter and she told you to bring the lawnmower back to the house and you actually listened. I couldn't believe it. Sammy Edwards actually listened to someone lol. I love and miss you Sammy.
