    "Please accept my condolences on the passing of Hal. Hal and Eleanor were always very kind to me when I did work on their home. I remember how much he talked about his children and it was easy to tell how proud he was of them. I’m sure he’ll be missed by all that had the pleasure of knowing him. "
