October 31, 1943 - September 22, 2021
Roswell Woodrow “Woody” Hamlett Jr. MISSING YOU A million times I needed you, A million times I cried; If love alone could have saved you, You never would have died. In death, I love you still In my heart you hold a place No one could ever fill. It broke my heart to lose you But you didn’t go alone Part of me went with you The day God took you home. God saw you getting tired And relief was not to be; Though he put his arms around you And whispered, “Come to me.” With tearful eyes I stayed with you But saw you fade away; Although I love you dearly, I couldn’t make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating Hard working hands to rest; God broke my heart to prove to me He only takes the best GREENSBORO - Roswell Woodrow Hamlett, Jr. went home to be with is Lord and Savior on September 22, 2021 after a long battle with cancer.
