Growing up next door to the Hall's, I was always amazed at the talents of Mr Hall. I was convinced, that, like my father, there wasn't a thing he couldn't do. After I grew older and would return for visits, I was assured that when being shown new items in his and Mrs Hall's collection; everything would be in pristine condition.
I'll remember Mr Hall as a charming and talented man as well as a delightful raconteur.
My thoughts and prayers are with Mrs Hall, Ann Lee, William and their families.
