It saddens me to learn of the loss of Mr. Hartley. Just the other day as I was driving down Pace Blvd I passed where his office used to be and wondered how he was doing. I always thought he was such a sweet man with a kind soul. Please know you all are in my thoughts and I pray you feel God's loving arms around you giving you comfort and strength.
