  22. Dear Family of Pastor Hall,While not having the pleasure of having met your father, I did have the pleasure of meeting your Mother several years ago in Houston – as she helped Rita during a difficult time. I knew then that your family was loving and that while your father was doing God's work, your Mother labored right beside him – and was such a blessing to many – especially her husband and children. I grieve as I just found out about the deaths of your parents in 2011. I pray that as time is passing that your faith is renewed and you feel peace in your hearts as your father is seperated from you for only a short time. God bless each of you …. I love your sister, Rita … and I'm sure her siblings are much as she is … loving due to a great and Godly foundation built by two Christian parents.God bless you and keep you in HIS loving arms until we see Pastor Hall again!Sincerely,Brenda Guill

  23. We are so sorry for your loss praying for your family as we celebrate his life he will be greatly missed!!
