Van, I am SOOO sorry to hear this sad news about our sweet Mr. Ham! I think about the two of you when I remember my days at Greenwood, and when I pass the school on my way into town. You two were almost inseparable and the days ahead are going to be difficult for you and your family. I am thankful that God will be with you to guide you through it all. I know that Mr. Ham is enjoying the blessings of heaven. I'm remembering that hearty laugh of his and know he's rejoicing with his loved ones that have gone on before him. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this sad and difficult time!

Much love,
Elaine Moore - aka E. Moore
