    Dearest Larry and family: Hallye will always have a special place in my heart!!! She was a talented, lovely person and was so kind to everyone she met. My Mother, Dorothy Simon will miss her terribly as they had become “sisters” in their time together at Cedar Hurst. May God hold all of you in His arms during this very difficult time. See you in heaven soon, Hallye. Love you!

  9. Calvin,

    My deepest sympathy, condolences, and prayers are extended to you and your family in this time of loss. When times are difficult reach back to Revelation 21:4 for hope and healing.
    4 “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.”
