I Met Mr Hammond Way Back In the 60s When He Had Hammond’s Hall In Chemung N.Y. My Parents Went There Every Weekend.. And I Remember Going There A lot To See Country Western Singers.. I Remember Seeing Kenny Robert’s There Many Times.. Mr Hammond Was A Very Sweet Man and His Wife Was Very Sweat Too.. When I used To Work At Some Elmira Restaurant’s I Would See Mr Hammond When He Came In For A Bite To Eat Or Just To Have Coffee..Mr Hammond Will Be Missed .. May He RIP...
