  20. Pastor Valerie Travis

    To Dwight, Kay and the extended Hamilton family. So sorry to hear about Joe although this is a hard place; what moves through all of us now is a quiet sadness, a silence, a longing for one more day, one more word, or one more touch; although we may not understand why Joe left this earth so soon, or why he left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little, by little, you will begin to remember not just that he died, but that he lived; and that his life gave memories too meaningful to forget. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Dear Maudrine, No one can know the sorrow you are feeling with the loss of your brother. Just know that I and your other classmates from Gary share in your grief. And when you are in your lowest of lows is when Christ can comfort you and wrap His loving arms around you and the rest of your family and the feelings of peace will surround you with His love.
