Mrs. Hampton was a gracious hostess for our girlfriend weekends with Barbara at her lovely home. She made me feel welcome, loved (she even tucked me in bed!— how special is that?) and became a treasured pen pal over the years. She had such a sweet, caring spirit and wonderful sense of humor. I will miss her friendship.
