My deepest sympathies to you Cherie. Your father was my other father when I was at your house playing. He was strong but fair and always had that sparkle in his eye that told you even if he was being stern, a smile was coming any moment! He and your mom were some of the best people I have ever known. They will always be missed.My very best to you and Mark.Kathy Crews

David G. Walling posted on 10/17/12 remember going out to visit Great Grandma Hall with my mother Grace Ann Hall Walling and my Grand mother Dorthea Allan Hall. Henry and Virginia where there a lot of the time working the farm. I remember sitting in his old jeep that he loved to drive around. When I was about 16 or 17, my long time friend and neighbor Jim Neal and I called Uncle Henry and asked if we could come out and work on the farm, it was cherry picking time...Jim and I worked all day picking and at the end of the day we had only picked one tree and filled one bushel of cherries. We had to split $1.50 between the two of us. We were at aw of how other pickers could pick so quickly and how slow we were. We lasted only that one day.I looked up to Henry for serving in the Army and he is one of the reasons I joined the Army and served as well. I am proud to call Uncle Henry a Brother in Arms.

I have so many fond memories growning up of Uncle Henry and the family. We shared the love for Border Collies and I loved to watch his dogs work the sheep. I will truly miss you Uncle Henry. Love you!
