  1. I am deeply saddened to learn of this dear friend’s passing. Sam Taylor was adored by many friends especially those whom he worked with in the grocery sales industry. Me especially, Sam taught me many traits to be successful in consumer product sales. His years at Campbell Soup to Broker Sales, the man knew how to establish relationships and sell.
    My thoughts and prayers are with the Taylor family during this time. May our dear Lord comfort you and be by all of you sides.
    I loved Sam Taylor.
    In Our Heavenly Father’s name, God bless you all.

  2. I am so sorry to learn of his passing. My deepest condolences goes to the family. The Bible describes death as being an enemy and how true that really is. How we look forward to the resurrection hope mentioned at Acts 24:15. Psalms 34:18 talks about Jehovah God being close to the broken hearted and saving those who are crushed in spirit. I hope these scriptures brings the family some comfort during this time.
