    Hal was a great businessman and it was a honor to know him. I worked at
    Delmar in Matthew’s and was Hal’s customer service representative for many

    We wish there was time to meet Hal, but we feel that we know him well from the great things that our colleague Hannah Westergren has told us about her graduate father, Hal. May the happy memories that you all shared with Hal sustain and strengthen you during this difficult time and forever. Please accept our sincere condolences.
