    there were & are a lot of good comedians out there, but none have even come close to you in style, the way you dissect some of the insanities of everyday life, & your obvious gusto of the philosophy “I did it my way.” I’ve watched your dvds over & over, especially when i need a little emotional pick-me-up or jump-start, & I think I probably will do so for a long time because it works for me.
    We were actually born just several mos. apart; I
    recently became a grandmother, but I’ve always loved the outrageous,at which you were masterful. You left us way too early,sam,& thanks to dvds &
    U-tube, your talent & memory lives on. RIP & may
    God bless your family.

    You are being torrmented in he’ll right now alongside the souls of Hitler, Dahmer, Bundy, Gacy,.

    The angel of Death appeared to you after tbe crash. You blasphimied the name of Jesus snd lost Gods protection and favor. Your untimely death should serve as a reminder to all not to cuck with God and Jesus.
