    Mr. Samuels will be deeply missed by everyone that knew him. I only knew Mr. Samuels vaguely before my father passed away. Mr. Samuels was one of my strongest supporters during that time period and I grew to admire him and love him as a father figure throughout the years that passed. Even though I stayed away from SC by being overseas, each time that I returned I would always see him and he would always great me with a smile and a hearty, “Lil Butch!” It was devastating to hear of his passing. Although we are all affected by this terrible lost, I know that none can be more affected than his loving family. My prayers are with you all and may God bless and comfort you as only He can.

    Indeed, I am saddened to hear of Hayes passing. I've known him for many years and found him a true friend, business man, and community leader. Death can disrupt the happiness and well being of family. Some blame God for death, far from the Truth as God considers death an enemy (1 Corinthians 15:26). Moving forward, you will continue to cherish his memories, while doing so take comfort in Acts 24:15. Those resurrected will have everlasting life and never have to faith death again.  https://www.jw.org./end/publications/books/dead-live-again-tract/dead-live-again/

    My first encounter with Mr. Hayes Samuels was at my Uncles Funeral held in the Chapel back in December 2017. He talked about how much he enjoyed our singing. He even said; "if our names were not on the obituary he would have named us the Hayes/Samuels Duet". My Deepest Condolences "Here is a great man who has left a wonderful legacy behind. He was larger than life and he lived it to the fullest. Now that he has gone may all the beautiful memories be a blessing to you and your children." Please accept our sympathies for the loss of your husband, father, grandfather, employer and friend etc...

    Mr. Hayes was and always will be a blessing to our family. His profession was not just a job, it was indeed, a true calling. To be able to give comfort with true respect and belief in God is a perfect gift. It seems as though the Hayes family has always been there. They've done so much for others. I pray that God continues to Bless and uplift the Hayes family. Let us follow his lead. Be all that God has granted. Follow in the footsteps of the greats before you and, be of service to God and your community. God bless the family, friends and the many families his intellect, professionalism, sagaciousness and love, has touched. By all means, live the example his life has taught. Go forth and be of service. Learn your craft and know that you can achieve. So proud of this man's accomplishments.

    DEAR YVONNE, "While I am sadden to learn that you are mourning the loss of your beloved husband Hayes, it saddens King Jesus and his Heavenly Father Jehovah even more (Psalm 83:18). As time passes, may comfort from many shared family memories bring greater consolation to all. The fact that you have memories, certainly shows that Almighty God Jehovah has memories of Hayes, whose life he longs to restore with perfect health, to enjoy "everlasting life" on a global Paradise Earth. Freedom from pain, sickness, suffering, danger, tears of sorrow and death are guaranteed by his son King Jesus. (John 3:16, John 5:28-29, Revelation 21:3-4 and Isaiah 65:17-25) IVONNE, you are warmly invited to visit this free website of comfort, JW.ORG to enjoy these Bible promises and view the video, "IS THERE HOPE FOR THE DEAD?"

    we're so sorry to hear about your loss. May you find strength and comfort from the words of Psalms 34:18. It reads: “Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit." Our loving God is there for us if we ask for his help (1 John 5:14). He didn't intend for us to grow old and die. He thus has made the SURE promise of a resurrection RIGHT HERE ON EARTH when it is restored to a beautiful paradise (Psalms 37:9-11, 29; Acts 24:15; Isaiah 55;11). Can you see yourself welcoming back to life your loved ones? What a joy it will bring all of us. You can go online to JW.ORG and find out more about this resurrection.

    My heart is saddened with the passing of a wonderful pillar of SC communities. May God comfort the Samuels' family and everyone Mr. Samuels touched. His warm and caring demeanor has calmed so many hearts over the years as we bereaved our loved ones. Now, it's time for God to calm the grief of those that love you. May your legacy live on forever. You will certainly be missed. However, God needed another heavenly servant, so you were chosen. May your soul and spirit continue to rest in the care of the Lord. Thanks for being an earthly blessing to those you touched all over this world. You made of better by being in our lives to care for us in our darkest days. RIP, Mr. Samuels!

    My condolences to the family on the loss of this compassionate man. The kindness and consideration he and his staff showed to me and my family after the loss of my mother will never be forgotten. He took care of all the arrangements professionally and with a great deal of sympathy. May his family and friends find comfort and a measure of peace in their memories and in the wonderful promise our God has made at John 11:25,26

    The daughters of Timothy J. Griffin and nieces of Shirby Griffin-Green wish to extend heartfelt condolences to the Samuels’ family and entire staff at this hour of grief. I will never forget how dignified and compassionate Mr. Samuels was during the passing of our father, Timothy. He shared fond memories of my father and his close friendship. He was a dear and faithful friend who regularly visited my father. In the moment that I met him, I felt his sincere kindness and warmth to others. We pray that God gives you strength and courage during this time. May the love of family and friends embrace you. “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted” Matthew 5:4 Ms. Jarius L.

    To the Hayes Samuel, Jr. Family, A. P. III and I are saddened by Mr. Hayes demise. We have enjoyed a long time relationship with him. We all grew up the the SCMA, Inc. organization. We also enjoyed talking about Johnson C. Smith University. Our late parents also knew his parents and each other. We are blessed that he has been a part of our lives and will truly miss him. SCMA will miss his voice and advice in meetings. He loved us and the members. History will record his greatness and contributions. May God continue to bless you during your bereavement.
