Samuel is survived by two daughters, Tina Messick and Tonia Meadows, and her husband, Steve; granddaughter, Tiffany Trythall, and her husband, Jarrad; great-granddaughters, Ava and Addy; sister, Jeanette; brother, Bobby; multiple in-laws, nieces and nephews.

Thank you to the Haywood Hospice team who provided outstanding care for our sweet Daddy the past year and nine months.  Special thanks to RN Stephanie, CNA Patricia and Chaplin Patrick who have become family.  And most of all, thank you to my sweet sister who essentially functioned as a nurse, CNA, therapist, and whatever Dad needed 24 hours a day.  It was her tireless and unselfish dedication that allowed Daddy to fulfill his wish to stay home.  A special thank you to Faye for everything she has done for us.  Thank you to anyone and everyone who helped Daddy over the years, it means so much to all of us.
