Jan and Dick, My heartfelt prayers and sympathy go out to you in the loss of Ms. Hamilton. What a fight she gave in her battle with Alzheimer's Disease. You were both so devoted to caring for her all these years. What a great example to all of us. You meant so much to me in the support group meetings each month. May God bless you in the days ahead with His peace and comfort. Ruth Hill
