I had no idea when discussing with Hal his study of loss, grief, and recovery, that he would force us to exercise his wisdom in dealing with losing him.  It’s hard to imagine the Elmira confab sans Hal.

Hal will be remembered for his excellent scholarship, especially his work on Mark Twain and religion. But we will also remember him as a lively and fun loving friend. His guitar playing added to the comeraderie at the Elmira conference. We will sing to his memory next summer. Rest in peace, Hal!
