“For a good tree does not bear bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. For every tree is known by its fruit.” I did not know Mr. Lionel Hamlett Sr. personally; however, I do know his fruit, Reginald Smith. He had to be a remarkable person and will be greatly missed. I hope his family and loved ones will find comfort in knowing this is not goodbye, instead farewell.
