Frederic Dale Hamilton

  “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted” Matthew 5:4. Last week our family lost the cornerstone of our family. Although our hearts are broken, we are also filled with such peace. Dad ran a long, hard and difficult race, but the finish line has been crossed and he has seen Jesus face to face! The words “well done my good and faithful servant have surely been said”! He loved God and tried to live his life as Christ like as he could. We will miss his laugh, his stories, his teasing, and his wisdom. As will so many others. He loved people and invested in so many lives. If you were lucky enough to know dad, you probably loved him. He loved his beloved Edgar Springs, and his precious Full Gospel church. He has left his footprint upon the fabric of Edgar, the community and his family, Heavens gain is our loss. But we have the blessed assurance that we will see him again!
