To the family of Hamp Colson
I wanted you know how much I thought of Hamp and how surprised I was to hear of his passing. Hamp and I grew up together in Hoke County. Went to school together, played together and spent hours just talking on his grandmother’s front porch. I haven’t kept up with him and I do regret losing touch. My love to his family, he will always be in my heart. Julie Best Landry
