Today, 21 March 2021 at 11:03am, my beautiful mom, Nancy Hamilton, left her sick body on this earthly world and spread her gorgeous wings to fly above all the pain. We were not ready to let her go, but it was her time to finally be free.
She is leaving me behind, but she will always be with me. Her spirit will comfort those of us who love her during our darkest hours.
She also leaves behind John Loftus, the man I want to spend forever with, and who keeps me grounded. Mom loves him like her own son. He is my other half, and I don’t think I could get through this without him. He is my rock.
Rowena Arnold, her second daughter. My little sister. Not by blood, but by love. It all began with a 3-year-old loving a dog.
And her two grandkids that mean the world to her, Alexus and Clayton Eudy. They have been the joy of her life.
Sadly, she was preceded in death by my dad, Junior Hamilton, as well as her parents Hobart and Grace (Donathon) Bailey, her brothers Leon, Harold and James, and her sister Oma.
She was born in a coal camp in Logan County, West Virginia on 1 December 1941.
She is survived by 2 sisters, Eleanor and Ada, nephews Phil (Todd), Eddie (Tammy), Mike and Tim (Rob), and nieces Kim (Wes), Teresa (Jim), Paula, Nancy Francis, and Virgiline, as well as many great and great, great nieces and nephews and cousins.
She is also survived by many other special people in her life. Kids by love, not blood.
Jackie. She has loved you and watched you grow into the good-hearted man you are today. Whenever you eat biscuits and gravy, think of her.
Bobby. She has also had your back and believed in you no matter what was going on in your life. She’s always in your corner.
Dewayne. Our families have been friends forever, and she has loved you from day one. You have always been so sweet.
Preston. You have always been there for us, and you are a very important part of this family. You are much loved by us all.
Bill. We have built a loving friendship with you, and mom saw the goodness in your heart from the very first time she met you.
Carl, Miah, Crislea, Nelda, Ricky, Julie, Amy. The list of her “kids” goes on and on.
Mom touched a lot of lives, and always had kindness in her heart. She loved animals and nature, and always looked forward to working in her flower beds and mowing the yard. Spring was her favorite time of the year. Her sweet dog Quenton will be lost without her.
I could go on and on about her. She was perfect in my eyes.
She was my mom.
