Dear Hamilton Family,

Please accept my deepest sympathies on the loss of your beloved. There are never any right words to express how deeply sad I am for the pain your family is enduring at this difficult time.

As Chair of the Senate Committee on Veteran Affairs and Military Installations, I am sincerely thankful for his valiant service in defense of our rights and freedom.

His commitment to family, friends, our community, and to serving our great nation leaves a wonderful legacy. May the love and the wonderful memories you shared with him help you when you need it most. He will never be forgotten, and your family will be remembered in my prayers.

Thank you all for the wonderful messages about a wonderful man. He was my night in shinning armor. The only thing that keeps me going is that I know I will see him again with his Lord and Savor.
Until we meet again.
Loretta Hamilton

I never had the luck to meet Jennie Lyn's Dad, but I always knew if I had, I would have liked him. Jennie Lyn always had such wonderful stories about him. No doubt a great loss for San Antonio and all those who knew him. My deepest condolences to Jennie Lyn and the family.-Mira Brockelman, Portland Oregon

Loretta, I am so sorry that Bob has passed, if I meet a kinder gentler man going forward, it would be hard to picture. Our office would light up when he would just walk into my office area, he enjoyed "entertaining" our admins! I remember taking him to a Spurs/Sonics playoff game in Seattle several years ago, just a few rows from the court and he was cheering for the Spurs, as he should, but also to get under my skin a bit too. I will miss him very much and will certainly miss the phone calls from "Old Hamilton" just to catch up with me. He's a dear man and a person that I will keep in my heart the rest of my life. My life is better because of Bob Hamilton and having him as a friend

Jennie Lynn, I'm just now learning of your loss, and my prayers are with you, your family, and your dad's friends. Reading about him, his life, makes me regret not having known him. Such a patriot, accomplished, talented and creative man--what a great life he lived to the fullest, and loved that he "danced up until the end". I hope you'll balance missing him with the blessing of having had him so long, and from reading about his life, you'll have tons of wonderful memories upon which to reflect and cherish. Best regards,
Tex Toler

Dear Jennie Lynn,
My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult life passage. I am glad to read about your amazing Dad and knowing you see how much sense it makes that you are his daughter. I am also glad that your Dad was with you for so many vibrant years. But I am so sorry for your loss that words cannot assuage now.
Nina Martin, Paul Hunt, Ian Hunt

Dear Jennie Lyn.
I was saddened to learn of your loss. It is so hard to lose a beloved father. I lost mine 15 years ago and I miss him to this very day. He was my champion. My father was of the same era as yours and shared mutual life experiences during the Great War and old fashioned values that made them great men, We are fortunate to have been their daughters. I mourn for you. Just remember him, his lessons about life and his individual dignity. He will never be gone as long as those who loved him remember his love and life.
