An unexpected phone call from my brother Osa woke me from deep slumber. He had bad news! His close friend in Nigeria had just called informing him that our mother suffered a stroke that left the right side of her body paralyzed.
When his mother fell ill Hammond said he took on a new role, that of a family care giver. That's when this industry trendsetter was forced to decrease his busy work schedule so he could care for the one person who helped to support his career goals along the way!
My mom must have thought I was sleeping when she began to sing in a bare whisper: “Comforter, Jesus is my Comforter, Alleluia Comforter, Jesus is my Comforter, Alleluia Comforter, Jesus is my Comforter, Jesus is my Comforter, I am not afraid.”
