    Donna and Family, I am so sorry to hear of his passing. I remember that he had Alzheimers the last time I rang the bell in Blue Spgs, Mo. I rang the bell in 2007, and 2013 in Independence which is where I live now with my husband Jeff. God give all of you love, peace, comfort, and strength. I will ring those bells this year in loving memory of Charles Hamilton.

    Dad…..its been 7yrs now….. I remember like it was yesterday…….I miss you so much…..I hate cancer…

    What Cancer Cannot Do !!

    It cannot cripple love.
    It cannot shatter hope.
    It cannot corrode faith.
    It cannot destroy peace.
    It cannot kill friendship.
    It cannot suppress memories.
    It cannot silence courage.
    It cannot invade the soul.
    It cannot steal eternal life.
    It cannot conquer the spirit

    Love you,

    Dad I’ve been thinking about you a lot lately, This year has been a crazy we have this stupid virus thing called Covid has pretty much taken over everyone’s thoughts, and feelings, the way we shop, the way the kids go to school, the way we travel, I had to cancel a trip that I had planned to go to see mom because of the stupid virus. There is more but it’s hard to explain. Sometimes in life I feel like we are so busy pleasing others that we lose the ability to please our selfs. I miss talking to you dad I miss your smile you could always cheer me up just by your smile. Love your daughter Donna

    Where do I start? Not a day goes by I don’t think about you. You were my world. I know we had drifted apart and I regret that more than anything. I’ve learned from it to not to hold on to stuff and forgive. Probably the hardest lesson I have ever lived. I miss you so much and I have two boys now Silas he’s a sweet loving boy who loves cars you would love him so much he looks like me and then we got Lincoln man oh man papa he’s so much like you he was almost born on your birthday little turd couldn’t of waited 1 1/2 hours lol but he’s funny and so naughty lol I can’t wait until we all meet again in Heaven. I love you so much and can’t wait to see your sweet smile and hear your laugh. Love ya papa
