Betty and family,
May God wrap your grieving hearts with his comfort and peace as you travel down the long and difficult road ahead. It is always so hard to say goodbye to those we love so dearly, but just remember Hal is no longer suffering or in pain. He has really caught "the big one" this time. Wayne will miss hearing his hunting and fishing stories! Please let us know if we can help you with anything! Our thoughts and prayers will be with all of you!
