To Eileen and the entire Hall family. Please accept my deepest condolences on the passing of Ray. I called him Dad for over a quarter of a century. I am forever grateful for all that He taught me and how he treated me like one of his own sons. During this extreme period of grief, I pray God gives all of you strength in his passing.

To Eileen and the family of Ray Hall, we send our deepest condolences on his passing. We lived on the same street, Portland Avenue, for a long time when our children were young and went to Douglas School. I still remember an icy night in 1982 when our daughter Chris went to your daughter Jodi's slumber party and Ray kindly walked her home the next day. It seems like yesterday. We hope the good memories that you have as a family will give you peace.

Eileen and family, Sandy and I are deeply saddened to learn of Ray's passing. Ray taught me a great deal about GMC trucks when I first got the franchise and we shared a lot of productive work time together. I regret that we will be unable to be there for all of you at the funeral as we are out of town. Our entire family have you in our thoughts and prayers. Rusty Wagner
