Mr. Haley (I wouldn't think of calling him Jack!) and Mrs. Haley were always kind and tolerant of me. There son John and I were typical boys growing up in the country, usually doing something we shouldn't be! Mr. Haley didn't say much, but he was always straightforward and clearly understood. It has been many years since I have looked into my memories and heart about my feelings of him and they are all good. I am saddened by his loss, the world has one less good man for family, friends to enjoy and love. My love, thoughts and prayers are with Mrs. Haley, Sonya and family today and the days ahead - Garrvan Knox
