    I was blessed to have had the opportunity to work with him. He was a mentor and friend to me. Our deepest sympathies to Shirley and the family.

    Every once in a while as we go through life we run across one life who adds to your own. Hal added to mine in many ways and I am saddened to hear of his passing. My deep sympathy to his wife Shirley and family who I know he cherished in this world above all.
