My heart is broken. I lost my best friend and loving husband this morning. I cannot even put in to words how I feel. We had been married 41 years and been through good, bad, happy and sad times but we got through it together. I am going to miss him so much but he is no longer suffering he is with Jesus. He loved every body and would do what ever he could to help any one. He had a wonderful sense of humor and loved life. I know he loved me, Scottie, Charlotte and Sydney with all his heart.

Tonight heaven gained a left-handed first baseman who happens to sing, fish, and tell a story or two. Sammy Flerl was friends to many but a father to one. While life will never quite be the same, man did we have a good time. When the movie of his life hits theatres, the last 8 months will be nothing but an epilogue as the credits roll. Instead you will see a 41 year love affair with Sherry Ann Flerl, a tough but loving father, a doting pawpaw, a good friend, and a man who wrapped all of that up inside a blanket of love for God. While we will certainly miss him, he made sure to let everyone know where you can find him and how you can get there. Rest In Peace Dad – you were one of a kind.
