Uncle Gene. You were the last of our father's siblings to pass on. We so enjoyed you and Lois and the children when you visited Noblesville when we were young. We send our condolences and wish the best to the Gene Hall children and grandchildren. Maybe one day we will see them again. From the George Albert and Betty Hall children.
