Monsignor Hamilton was one of the most brilliant, inspirational and kind priests whom I have ever encountered. He was passionate about the English language, and wrote beautifully. I taught K-8 visual arts at OLPH school for eighteen years, and his appreciation of the arts was always apparent. His support of the art program, and of the school in general, was unwavering. May he rest in peace with our Lord.

I heard of Father Hamilton's death this morning at Mass. I remember him fondly from his service to St. Anne's parish in the 1960's and 1970's. God Bless Him and May He Rest in Peace.

Msgr. Hamilton blessed a beautiful picture of St.Therese for me near the L.I. railroad when I met him by chance as I was on the way to give it to a friend. Thank God for his ministry. May he rest in peace.
