Hal, I will miss you. Even though you began your travels 50 years ago we worked to stay close. First by letter, long distant phone calls cost too much. We did cassette tapes and dvd's then using our cells sharing pics and more. You taught me much. I copied most of what you did. Both good and bad. We had differences through out the years but we worked it out and had mutual respect and love for each other. I know Jesus embraced you in his arms and said "My peace I give unto you. You are with me now." Give our parents my love. Enjoy.

I send my prayers and love to our family at this time. I am proud to say Hal Genther was my uncle. A good man who wasnt afraid to be himself. I admire your wisdom and dedication to help others. In death we find victory through our lord and savior Jesus Christ. You are now at peace with grandma and grandpa. I love and miss you uncle Hal.
