Hall had a way of always making me smile. His sense of humor was infectious! I looked forward to seeing him and Helen so I could get my hugs. They are a wonderful example of love. I think of the many trips we would go on with the Abbotts Creek Young at Heart group. Hall would ask "Are we there yet" and "How old will I be when I get there?" Well, Hall you are 85 and you are there! You have reached the end of your earthly journey but I know you are making the angels laugh! Thank you for loving me and my family.

Uncle Hall was a great man! He had a fantastic personality and sense of humor. He loved my Aunt Helen with all his heart and was devoted to her always. In addition to all of the things mentioned in his obituary, he also raised beautiful Beagle hunting dogs and trained them. He was such a sweet and gentle soul. May he rest in the arms of God.
