Daughter to deceased Trimble Coleman and Ruby Coleman. Wife of deceased John Hamin . Mother to deceased infant daughter, Wilma Sue Hamlin, deceased son, Gerald Hamlin and daughter Vivian Hamlin Fecso. Grand children, Lori, Lisa, Lindsey and Randy. Great Grandmother to Taylor Kay. My mother, Ann, was a wonderful and beautiful person. She loved all things and was always there to lend a helping hand.

My Mother was the oldest of 9 children. She was never able to be a child as there was much work to do, always having to help with the chores and watch the younger children while her Mother worked in the garden and Father went off to work to support the family.

She married my Dad, John Hamlin on July 1, 1948. They lost their oldest daught, Wilma Sue at 5 months old. She worked on and off through out her life, but made sure she was there for my brother, Jerry and myself.

Mom battled cancer on five separate occasions. She lived her life with the kind of dignity I hope I can do. She never complained, even when we all knew she was in pain. My Mom is my hero......she was the most beautiful woman I've ever known.

We don't always get to choose our destiny.....but if I had a choice it would be to be like her. Mom got weary in 1998, she made her choice to go with hospice. I honored her wishes and took her home with me. I went to her room, to check on her. I kept a baby monitor where I could hear her, always carrying the handset wherever I went. Five minutes later, I couldn't hear her breathing. I went back to her room, my Mother had slipped away quietly. I'll always believe she waited until I left the room to take her last breath.

My Mother had great faith in the belief of God. I know she is in Heaven, no longer suffering and in pain. I'll never stop missing her but I know we will be together again someday. Until then Mom, know that I Love You and miss you more everyday.

I will always be grateful that my Mother was not alive when my brother, Jerry took his own life by hanging himself in 2002. I know she could not have withstood that.

A Mother's Message From Heaven

I see you, darling, all the time, I know everything you do,
Would you believe, my dearest child, I'm even closer now to you.
For I can see inside your mind, indeed, inside your heart,
I even know you better now, than i did before, sweetheart.
I've always loved you-you know that, but maybe now I love you more,
I love the adult that you've become, just as I loved the child before.
I know how much you miss me, honey, well I miss you too,
I miss our talking and our laughing, and all we used to do.
Whether you are six or sixty, you'll always be my precious child,
You're the baby that I carried, and the adult that's helped me smile.
What you need to understand, though death has taken me away,
Is that I've not left you, darling, I am still with you today
Honey, I could never leave you, God, of course would not want that,
Physically, we are apart, but our hearts are still attached.
I love you all the time, you cannot get away from me,
That's the way a Mother is, right into eternity.
Every day I'm with you, I see you from above,
And I want for you to know, how very much you're loved

Come On In

I wish I could see you and hug you once more.
I wish I could knock once again at your door.

I'd holler "It's me Mom"
and you'd say "Come on in,"

We'd talk about good times,
about family, and friends.

We'd laugh and get tickled about all sorts of things,
I'd look in your eyes, and the sparkle they'd bring.

You would tell me the stories from back in your day,
And I'd listen intently to all that you'd say.

Sometimes our smiles would turn into tears,
for the loved ones we've missed and held very dear.

I cling to the memories you've left me inside,
Hoping not to forget them as time quickly goes by.

And now I tell the stories from back in my day,
About days long before my dear Mom passed away.

I tell of the love and the happiness we shared,
And all the good times she made certain were there.

I love you so much Mom, and just wish once again,
I could knock on your door, and you'd say "Come on in."
