My father taught me many things. One of which is to make the most out of every day. To do the things that make you most proud and to treat each day as a gift. We had so many wonderful times together and will cherish with all my heart the times I will enjoy with Jennie. I will miss him. I will try to be strong knowing you are spending eternity with God. I love you. Pam



I express my deepest condolences and sympathies to all of Hal's family, especially to his wife Jenny. Hal was one of the best men that I ever knew; a wonderful Christian man who had the tremendous gift of encouragement. He kept in contact with me and my family concerning the accomplishments of my children. I was blessed to be his pastor for a short time, and he will always have a special place in my heart. -Pastor Michael "Mick" Laflin.
