    Our thoughts and prayers are with each member of the family. Hal always had a special smile and friendliness that spread to everyone. As children, Randy and I always loved to go down to Aunt Buna’s house where Hal and Lee often visited. My mother, Mary, is now in a nursing facility but sends her love and prayers, too.

    Teresa, I am deeply sadened by the passing of your father. I had the pleasure of working with him at ETSU and he made each day brighter. Things were never the same once he retired. We could always count on him to fill the day with light hearted humor. Susan

    Terry, Spencer, and Whitney: We visited Uncle Hal and Gracie the day he went home from the hospital. We were amazed at how young and healthy he looked and what a positive outlook he had for a person with his medical condition. We are surprised at how fast his condition deteriorated. In fact, I wrote him a letter last Sunday and mailed it the day he died. He was very proud of the three of you. We will always remember his gentle manner, mischievous sense of humor, and contagious laugh. Cherish all of the wonderful memories you have of him. He will always be with you in spirit. With love and sympathy, Larry and Sharon McCourry
