Just to let you all know, Hal passed peacefully away at 03:59 this morning. He knew us til just before the end. He loved hearing from each of you who called, visited, or sent messages that I read to him. He loved his friends dearly. He will be missed by his family but we are thankful he is with his heavenly father. Thanks to you all! There will not be a service until Monday probably because of the weather here. He is at Emerson Funeral Home here in Jonesboro.

Dee and family.
