    Condolences to the family. Hal was a good friend . A kind and generous person. I sure will miss his company. He sure could tell some interesting stories and he could tell some good jokes. He helped me out a lot over the years after I lost my husband David. They were good friends. I have been blessed to have known his kind soul. I will greatly miss him. Virginia and Victoria and family y’all in my thoughts prayers.

    Hal was one of the best friends I have ever had. He was amazing. He and I have known each other since high school. We attended college together and had many adventures. I am so sorry for the loss to the family. Hal always thought of others and helped where he could.

    I wish Hal’s family the very best possible in such a difficult time.

    Hal was indeed one of my best friends, and he was both a mentor and co-conspirator with me in learning everything we could.

    We literally watch a massive DVD set in his living room that he had acquired,and jokingly called it: OS/2 The Movie.

    He loved learning as much as I do and there isn’t much higher praise I can offer.
