My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, Hal. You have always been such a good son to your dad. I am going to miss him like crazy. When I was home in June and went by to see him, only to learn of the changes in his living arrangements, I became especially grateful for our LAST visit in 2012 when we talked for hours and looked at lots of old war pictures and, well, what a wonderful time it was, and it's going to be my last memory of him, among many. What a good friend he always was to me. Thank you Morry for all the fun and all the memories! R.I.P. my friend.By Bonna
