Not sure what to say?

Thinking of You today Mrs. Hamner. Reverend Hamner was always so kind to me, and I miss my conversations with him. You were both so fortunate to have had each other.

Reverend Hamner was such comfort to me when I lost people I loved. He was a great person and I will always remember him.

We felt so blessed when Reverend Hamner agreed to perform our wedding ceremony almost 26 years ago. The things he talked to us about during pre-marital counseling have stuck with us. He was a fine gentleman and a true example of a Christian. May God comfort his family in the days ahead. Sincerely, Greg and Daphne Huffman

I feel for you, Ann, Carol, and their families now. Rev. Hamner meant a lot to me and my family and we will certainly miss him. I would have had no one else marry me and Hamid. He and my father (Rodney Holland) will be together with God, and that brings me comfort. God Bless you and your family.

Mr. Hamner was our pastor at Grandin Court from 1980 to 1985. The first visit we had when we moved to Roanoke in 1980 was from him. His interest in us as a family was responsible for our becoming members of this wonderful church. During our six years in Roanoke we came to know him well. He was a wonderful pastor, a gifted proclaimer of the gospel, a role model for how a Christian should live and a friend. We thank God for the opportunity to know this great man and be a part of his...

Bob Hamner, was a Prince and a Gentleman, and we loved him and his bride.

Many heartfelt thanks to you and your family for the many years of love and support you gave to my mother, Amanda Wilson Bonham. Even though I was gone from home many of those years she always spoke so lovingly of your help in her times of need. She was certainly a rock in our family as I know Rev. Hamner was in yours. There has to be a lot of rejoicing in Heaven right now!!

Donna, I give thanks for Bob (and you) and his deep faith in Christ risen and alive. May he hear those words addressed to good and faithful servants: "Well done.... come share your master's joy".

I will be with you in spirit this week. Unfortunately, as he is remembered in prayer and with thanksgiving I'll be in Oklahoma City at the National workshop for Christian Unity. How appropriate, since I first met Bob at a minister's meeting years ago!

I will take...
