What a perfect picture of uncle Curtis. I can never remember him not smiling! When we visited him in Virginia or he visited us in Georgia he always told me interesting stories of our family in Virginia. Keeping me in mind, he would always end up wanting to talk about the Atlanta Braves. I never new if he was a big fan or was just doing it for me, but I do know I was a fan of his. I will always cherish the memories of visiting with uncle Curtis. He was a great American and a wonderful uncle and I will miss him very much. Love, Gary.

Mr Hall was a great guy. Loved to smile and laugh. I don't know if there was ever a kinder soul. He use to visit me when I worked at the Toyota dealership often and tell me stories of the war, his family and his job. It was always a pleasure to see him wearing his smile. Just a super great guy. A real reminder of how people should be. No doubt the gates of heaven were opened wide to welcome him home. May his soul rest in peace.
