    To the Hamill’s,
    My thoughts are with you and your family. Your mom and dad were always so nice. Your mom treated all the neighborhood kids kindly. Even when we would all show up and invade her house. I am truly sorry for your loss, losing a mother is one of the hardest things. RIP

    Mrs. Hamill will be truly missed. She was a very loving and caring person. I worked at Churchmans and sometimes had her assignment. She was always concerned how I was doing (because she knew I had problems with my knee.) Mrs. Hamill loved Churchmans and we loved her. My prayers are with the family.
