    We will miss you Duane, I always enjoyed our special times together ( church, lunches, dinner and sitting on your deck having a glass of wine) and a in-depth conversation about people and life. I’ll cherish the memories I sat at your bedside and encouraging to be strong and hold on ( you did). You lived a good life and now you’ve been given your rest. A job well done!! Love you forever and always in our hearts 🙏🏾🕊️❤️

    Sending my most heartfelt condolences and Love to Father Hamer’s Family. He was truly a Joy to be around. Anytime you were around him you were bound to laugh at his great sense of humor. He will be deeply missed. To be absent from the Body is to be present with the Lord and I am sure Father Hamer is present with the Lord. When you begin to feel down Family Think of the good times because those good times always warm your heart and turn those down moments into joy and laughter. Sending you all my most heartfelt Prayers at this time.

    My Sincere Condolences to the Hamer/Britt Family. I will miss Dad Hamer sitting in the back at Living Water World Wide Ministry as I would be ushering and he would give me directions on which way to turn the fan away from him. To the Hamer/Britt Family Thank You for sharing your Dad/Granddad with so many of us and allowing us to refer to him as Dad. He filled a void in my life and for that I am Thankful for the time I got to know him. My continued Prayers for Strength and Peace are with you all.
