Kathy, being probably my dad's best friend, I have memories of Hal starting when I was a little girl in the '50s. Both of your parents will be in my heart always, but flashes of Hal are especially strong, and I am so happy I got to see him several times in the final years of his life. He ALMOST made it to 100!

As a child, visiting my Aunt, Uncle & Cousin during the Summer; my memories of Uncle Hal were that of a good looking, well dressed businessman who was the tall, silent type. He kept track of what was going on around him with nods and comments over a newspaper, and then "poof" he was off and running. From time to time I would hear him playing his drums downstairs in his lovely home in Orinda, and loved to peek at him enjoying himself...such a different type of man than I was used to interacting with in the country. (Pretty darn interesting for a young girl from the mountains!) I will never forget his kindness when I was visiting one Summer and he took me for a ride in his airplane to see where my family lived in the Santa Cruz. We circled the farm I lived on and it was truly an experience of a lifetime for me. Thank you Uncle Hal; you are remembered as part of our big, extended family. Be at peace. Betty Henri - Ellsworth
