My heartfelt sympathies for the family of Mr Haller. We lived across the street on the corner with Grandma and enjoyed your whole family. So sorry for the loss. My mom passed away in July and it is very hard. Special hugs to Cathy she is the one I knew most. Later in the years my good friends Mary and Kevin Harrell told me of their relationship to you and made me know you even more. Love and hugs. Diane Bennett DeSonie. (Ketron family)
