Since our (Jo & me) move to Douglasville, I have already missed Hammond and getting to talk with him out in our yards! And I will certainly miss him more now. He was a really nice person, a fellow veteran, a friend, and sure was a great long-time neighbor. My sincere condolences to his family, and best wishes and fond memories for you all.
