Greta, Christy Jo and David: My sympathies to all of you as you mourn the loss of Bart. Bart was an exceptional man who touched so many lives and grieving hearts in the Fox Valley. He was also a mentor, friend, confidant and supporter of mine for almost 33 years. I have been blessed to have Bart in my life for so long. I will never forget his compassion, quick wit, engaging Christmas letters and kind soul. May your memories of Bart live on in your hearts forever! Dan Densow

For every joy that passes, something beautiful remains".

My sympathies are with all of Bart's family and friends at their time of loss. His presence will leave such a hole in this earthly world. But he also leaves us with fond memories and a tremendous example of a life filled with love and generosity. Bart's heart of gold will always be remembered with great fondness!

Dear Greta, Christy, David & family, what a journey Bart has been on these last few months as you have with him too. May he now be at peace. He fought the good fight and brought so much to life throughout his rich, full and colorful earthly walk. And we.....without exception are better and richer in spirit for having known and loved him. What a brilliant, creative, hilarious, nutty, generous, tender and kind fellow was Bart Hammond. He never failed to light up a room, bigger than life that he was. God bless and comfort you as you mourn his passing while giving thanks for the human treasure he was. Thinking of you prayerfully in the days ahead....
