Miss Hallie will be missed. She was always there for her neighbors and friends. Our memories of fishing at Hatteras, enjoying the antique engine show, and serving together with our fire department will always be how we remember her. We share in your sympathy in the loss of a great lady. Robert & Martha McCollum

Hallie always made me feel welcome at her house as I was growing up. We were neighbors and I used to play with Inez and Sandra. She was a fine Christian and many talented woman. It was interesting to see what craft project or sewing project was underway when I went to visit, and the finished products turned out well. I appreciate her helping lead the community 4-H club and help with other community activities. In addition to learning useful things, the 4H group did some fun things, such as trips to Six Flags Over Georgia and to White Lake. I want to convey my sincere condolences to her family and friends. She will be missed here on earth, but I believe she has gone on to a better place. I can just imagine she and my Aunt Garnet and cousin Susan having a nice reunion in heaven! Sandra and Family, you are in my thoughts and prayers.
