    I am so truly sorry for the loss of your father Hal. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers at this sad time, just know and take comfort that your dad is resting peacefully with your mother now. I personally will miss his stories of his life that he loved to share with us. He was a great man that loved and took pride in his grandchildren, he will be missed by many. RIP Hal. Love Carol

    Dear Monica, Brian and extended families: It is with sadness to hear of Hal's passing, although, we believe he is now at peace & in union with his beloved wife and partner Walli. We are so very glad to have seen Hal in August - what a blessing to have spent that day with family! Monica, our thoughts and prayers are with you today & always. Having lost Dad 27 years ago, I know what kind of void is left in a family! Time does heal, but there is not a day goes by that our loved ones are not thought of, as they live on for eternity in our hearts. Brian, the same message for you - loosing a father is very hard - again our thoughts and prayers go out to you & your family! Love & Blessings Always, Pearl & Brian
