    Brother Hamp and family. We were so sorry to hear of your beautiful wife’s passing. You were both loved very much by all of us in the Tate’s Creek Association churches. You were both truly dedicated to the churches here and most of all to the Lord! I am so glad Sandra got to spend these last few years surrounded by her children and grandchildren. I am sure her legacy will live in their lives. We at Wallaceton Baptist will be keeping your family in prayer in the coming weeks. God is so good. She was a treasured gift to you and your family for so many years!!
