A finer man you will not find, A deeper hole be seldom felt, But emptiness one day be filled, When we share the joy of Heaven's rest.

I pray you find comfort knowing that he is with our mighty God and at peace! God continue to bless your family and give you all strength through your grief! Denise Broadway, March 14, 2019 So sorry for your loss Dr Hamilton. I realize that losing your Dad is difficult. We don’t get to say how long we get to keep our parents but you can determine how long to keep the memories they gave us.
