My Uncle Don, whom I spoke with often, and just this past summer we, talked about when he may be able to visit again in the Birmingham area. And only tonight, October 31, 2016, did I find out he passed away 3 months ago. This saddens, me very much. He and I traveled together sever times to visit his oldest sister, my Aunt Leotta in Fayette Alabama before her passing. My Uncle Don was a wonderful man, and was the only family member who regularly kept in touch with me. He was a wonderful Uncle, a generous man, and a friend to his older brother, my father, S. D. Hallman. This revelation is very disturbing to me; I loved you Uncle Don. Your Nephew, Dennis Lynn Hallman, Montgomery, Alabama
