    A life well lived is a job well done. It is God’s way of promoting one of His own to the next level. My heart is truly saddened. I know Hal fought hard to win this “battle” called cancer but God called him to reap and savor the goodness of heaven via his good works on earth. To Ms. Stocking, Susie and the rest of the family I cry along with you. God never forgets about us when we are celebrating good times as well as comforting us in the bad. I want to say that you are never alone. God will always will be with you. He is the one who washes away our tears when we are hurting. He is the one we can talk to when no one doesn’t feel like listening to our anger and fears. He IS and will always be the friend, father, husband, etc. we can all talk to. God never fails. You are all in my prayers and Hal will always be in our hearts. He has fought a good battle as one of God’s soldiers. Now he is serving as a colonel in the Lord’s army. Fight on brave soldier.
