Dearest Margaret, I did not know of Hal's passing until several day after his memorial.

i remember him with such joy in my heart. His lust for living and his turnips. Coming to Hands of Mercy with his dog in the truck and hoping he got back to Harriman ok.

I will surely miss him. He was a person I can truly say had his heart in the right place and Heaven is a better place with him there.

My prayers with be with you and your family

a genuine loss for Hal's family, his many friends, his Church and Harriman. My Mother, Shorty Allen, who recently died, was a contemporary of Hal's and I remember him primarily as a fellow member in the Methodist Church. He and Margaret lived in Mother's home place on Margrave Street for several years so \our family shared that special tie with them. Such a sincerely kind person who was always so friendly, warm and caring. People with Hal's characteristics are few

Margaret, I was so sorry to hear of Hal's passing. He will be greatly missed. As you know, mother and David treasured your friendship and entertained us many times with "war stories" of your trips. My prayers are with you and your family.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my friendship with Hal and Margaret and could seldom pass through the Harriman area without stopping by to see him if only for a few minutes. He was always gracious and warm and welcoming. We worked together on planning and building the Walled Harriman Garden club Garden in the

The little white truck sits in the driveway. We miss the squeak of the brakes every morning as Hal and Murphy set out in the truck on their morning rounds. No more boxes of vegetables or truckloads of mulch to be shared with neighbors. We miss you and your visits, Hal. You have been a wonderful friend.

Aunt Maggie, John, Lynn, Judy and the whole family, so sorry to hear about Uncle Hal's passing. There is so much I remember about him growing up. His smile, laugh, words of wit and wisdom, caring and helpfulness through all the years. He lead a fulfilled life and always made and got the most out of it all. It was so great to experience and learn his wonderful outlook and workings on life and living all to it's fullness. You
