Dearest Eric, Kayla & Debbie,       I just found out today, July, 22nd, about the passing of your father/husband and words cannot express my sincere condolences.  I am shocked as I had no idea. PLEASE know that you are all in my prayers and thoughts.  Debbie, it wasn't long ago that I bumped into you and we shared a few updates about your beautiful family, so naturally this is difficult to comprehend and I am truly sorry.  Feel free to reach out via email at jbhmmh@icloud.com. With respect and God's blessing upon all of you, Michele M. Hamilton ❤️

Dear Kayla, I am so sorry for the loss of your dad. When my dad passed away around the same age as your dad, someone shared these words of comfort with me which have proved to be so true over the years..." We never really lose the ones we love, for in our hearts their memory lingers on."  May you find comfort in the memories that you have of your dad and the "special " times that you shared with him. Please extend my sympathy to your mom and to Eric. Keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Sending you a hug. Your Kindergarten Teacher, Mrs. Burns
