To All of the Hall Family : I am very sorry for your loss. Jack (and his wife) were good people and I loved them both. We attended Open Bible with their entire family for many years. They made a huge impact on my life and on family's life.
WE will see them both, when we go home to be with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. 'What a day that will be....'
