Guest Book Highlights

April 16, 2012 "I am sorry that such a great Lady of compassionate dedication to her community, state and the nation died at this crucial time she should be resting peacefully at home to give advice and support to the present and the future leaders at all levels of government from her commendable experience in the US political activities. Whichever way we look at it, you are a Heroine. You have won for yourself a political credit as a brave and committed member of the congress and your trophy remains in the history as the first female African-American representing Indiana until this world is over. You love human rights and you won it for the recognition of Martin Luther King as one of the world greatest social activists. We love you here in Nigeria, and we are proud of you and your longtime involvement in promoting the course for the advancement of African -Americans, the Black in general and America at large. I pray you rest in a peaceful abode in the Hands of God and be granted God's forgiveness to dwell forever in Paradise. All you left behind including my friend Junifer Detrice Hall, her sister, Jacqueline Demetrius Hall and all other members of the family will be peaceful at all times under the protection of God, amen. May you rest in peace, we shall all miss you and you would be remembered always in our prayers. Rest in Peace!" - Adekunle Daoud Balogun (Lagos, Nigeria)
March 21, 2012 "I would first like to say that the more I have learned about the lovely Attorney Katie Hall the more I began to cry. I am Attorney Hall great-niece (granddaughter of her sister Joyce Green) and I am astound by the things I recently learned. Attorney Hall was an African American woman who, through hard work and dedication to her community, has managed to become apart of American History. I love the woman you were and you've touched my heart in the most amazing way. You have inspired me to learn more about my family history and you also taught me that there are positive women I can look up to in my family. Even though I didn't know you very well my love for you is just as strong as the family members that have been around you there whole life. You will always and forever be in my heart." - Latasha Green (Chicago, IL)
March 13, 2012 "My sympathy, prayers and love go out to the family. May the peace of our LORD be with the family, Bessie Protho Watkins and family." - Bessie Protho, Watkins (Gary, IN)
March 06, 2012 "My sympathy I extend to the Hall Family. Katie was a loving, kind and humble person. I'll always remember the years growing up with the family at Van Buren Church, and Katie babysitting my sister and I. May your hearts be comforted knowing she now is at rest, and the loving pleasure she shared with us all through her works." - Bert Mounia (Phoenix, AZ)
March 03, 2012 "I would like to extend my deepest sympathy to the Hall Family: Katie was a kind and loving person. I remember her from years of service with the Van Buren church, the Gary Community, Washington, D.C. and the world. We are a little better because of the course she took to assure that King's birthday would be stamped in our history books. What a wonderful testimony of a life. May she rest in peace and may we all continue to remember her." - Pat Fointno (Chicago, IL)
