  1. I want to offer my sympathy to the family of Mr Edgar Hammond and to share with them some comfort from God’s Word, the Bible. One of my favorite scriptures assures us that death will be done away with and sickness and sorrow. What a wonderful time it will be to live without the fear of sickness and death. This comforting promise is found in Revelation 21:3,4. I sincerely you can find comfort in reading this scripture.

  2. Miss you so very much, you have lived a long life and God saw fit to bring you home to live with him forever. We will carry on and share memories of you forever. Rest In Peace sweet GiGi!

  3. I am so sorry to hear about Mr. Edgar. I will be praying for Jimmie and the family. They have been so good to my family.

  4. Jimmie, please know you are in my thoughts and prayers. I pray Jesus will wrap His loving arms around you and comfort you during this difficult time. My condolences to the family.

    Love you Jimmie.

  5. Jimmie and family, so sorry for the loss of your precious Edgar. He was a great man and musician. George loved to play music with you both. So sorry we were unable to come to the funeral and visitation. George is in Rehab in Franklin, TN from two different falls. We love you all and our love and prayers are with all of you for comfort and peace in the days ahead. George and Betty Capps
