As a youngster growing up on Hill Street three house up from the Hamels, I have fond memories of my time with the Hamel family. I refrain from calling her Evelyn because to me she was always Mrs. Hamel. I could go on and on but I'll keep it short. The Hamels were the first family to have a television in the neighborhood so I used to go there to watch Howdy Doody with Brad almost daily. Then there was the breakfast nook in the kitchen where so many times Mrs. Hamel would make yummy cheese sandwiches with a bowl of tomato soup. The times we would go to their family camp in East Otis. Always I found Mrs. Hamel to be gracious, kind and caring. To me as I am sure to others she was a truly remarkable woman. I will miss you Mrs. Hamel but please rest in peace, you are finally with Mr. Hamel again.
Love,
