Ora Hamilton

will now with a sad and broken heart try to write an obituary of my dear beloved husband, to wit: Ora Hamilton. lie was the son of Robert Hamilton and Clearinda Hall Hamilton. Brother Ora was born May 5, 1896 and departed this life February 23, 1964, making his ~s Lay here on earth 68 years, 8 months and 18 days. He and his companion joined the Old Regular Baptisit Church ~bout 7 years ago. He leaves here on earth to mourn his loss two sons, Caner Ham-ilton of Apple Creek, Ohio and Ronnie Hamilton, an adopted son, of GaIveston~ Ky., and many other friends. He said about three weeks before he died he talked all night with the Lord and said he would call him when he needed him. He never .lingered sick very long, and he cer-tainly did bear his sickness with patience. He filled his seat at the old church when he was able to go. He leaves here on earth one Brother and three sisters to mourn his loss, Troy Hamilton, Rosy Adkins and Martha Hall all of Galveston, Ky. and Maudie Hunter of Printer, Ky. Brother Bert Conn was here on Saturday before he died on Sunday morning. He was talking with him and when he started to leave he told Brother Bert he wanted him to come back and have church for him and he died on Sunday morning between the hour of four and five o'clock. The death angel came after him. Oh, we hated to give him up. When he died he was clapping his hands and shouting. Oh how we all do miss him and hated to give him up, but we feel our loss is Heaven's gain. We feel that some day we will all be together again where we won't have to part any more. We feel that when king Jesus comes again to gather his children here on earth and take them home Brother Ora will be in that number. The Bible says blessed and holy is he that has a part in the first resurrection for on such the second death has no powed and we believe by the life Brother Ora lived while here on earth he will be in that number. His funeral will be preached the fifth Saturday and Sunday in August 1964. Every body is invited to come.
Written by his broken hearted companion, Corsettia Hamilton and niece, Opal Hamilton
