    Meet Mr. Hall a couple of times and he was everything anyone had every spoken about him. He will be missed! Sorry for the loss of a great man.

  • He and Geri were some of the best neighbors Ray and I ever had. When I was taking chemo for my first cancer, Geri fed me. He would appear at the door daily with something she thought I could tolerate. I will never forget their kindness and love they shared with me. The World has lost a great man but I know he is happy to be with his sweetheart again. Prayers for all his family.
