Your smiling face, your gentle embrace, oh how it seems as if it was just yesterday, that you and I was in the breezeway laughing after you ringed your bell, and me answering your call just to here you say, with a sweet grin on your face and overwhelming love in your heart saying, I didn't want anything I just wanted to see your simling face. Oh how I miss and love you so much, Mother you are forever in my heart and as always you are my number one Girl, love you and I miss you. Love your babyboy, Leon

I came to visit your grave site today. After 7 years it still hasn't gotten any easier. It's hard to go from hearing somebody's voice on a daily basis, to not hearing it at all anymore. I would love to hear your voice again. I love you and miss you dearly grandma. I wish you had gotten the chance to meet my wonderful son. I definitely tell him all about you. But I know you're looking down on us smiling. Sleep on Grandma

Mother, a single day does not pass by without me thinking about you and the fond memories we share. Seven years ago today we were privileged to be by your bedside as you went home to be with Our Lord. I still remember the glow on your face and how all of us were there to share in your Glory.

It has been 7 years as of today's date -- yet the heaviest in my heart remains. As memories of you Mom and of our lives (both sweet and otherwise) continue to flood back - I attempt to journal them all. I pray the once the ENTIRE STORY of Ladion (Paxton) Hammons is told - the neighborhoods, City of St. Pete, Tampa Bay Area and every place she has impacted will imbrace the Full Legacy of this remarkable woman -- our Mother Ladion(Paxton) Hammons

Mom - This date (May 24, 2011) is burned into my memory and into my heat for eternity. I was at a conference in Nashville, TN when I received the call that i should get home (to St. Pete) as quickly as possible. My heart sank. I left the conference as Lu made flight arrangements. I drove the 400 miles back to Springfield (through the thunderstorms and tornado's that destroyed Joplin, MO) in 4 hours --- but it was only by the Grace of God that I even made it. This was the start of the most traumatic week in my entire life. The week that ended in you answering The Lord's call home.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY HEAVENLY ANGEL; MISS YOU SO VERY MUCH!!!
Posted by Kenneth Hammons on 25th May 2016
This day five years ago we sat in a hospital room in St. Petersburg and said good bye to a lovely angel. It was a special moment and a sad moment as we watched Mother breath her last breath. I'll never forget the special radiant light in that room and the special glow on her face. Mom we love and miss you very much!!!

Mom - it has been 5 years ago on this day since you answered The Lord's call home. But I imagine you hearing His call and asking Him if he would allow you to see me and smile at me just one more time before taking your journey home -- and Him saying "Yes My child". Then Him putting things in motion for me to get there. Through a six hour drive from Nashville, TN. back to Springfield - throught Lura and Janay making last minute flight arrangements in St. Louis -- through Tornado warnings and flight cancellations then finally making it in the last two seats on the last plane to Florida that evening -- through terminal closings in Fort Myers, the closest available airport. He kept the car rental places opened and available for us to actually rent a car to drive 2 hours to St. Petersburg and still He allowed you to wait. Then when Janay and I finally arrived, you opened your eyes and smiled up at me. The Lord allowed the family and special friends to gather around you. And while we joined hands and I prayed over you --- you said "Thank You - Ok Lord" and quietly slipped away into His Loving Arms ----- That's Love. I (we) love you Mom and you are "Forever Missed"

Mom - It has been three years since you answered The Lord's called to join Him in glory. But I still expect and look forward to our weekly "catching up" phone calls or you calling me on Monday if I hadn't called by Sunday evening and asking "Boy - your hand broke or something?" Then continuing our ongoing conversation about years gone by. I still talk to you even in spirit and feel you speaking back to me. I miss you and love you dearly Mom.
