"Dad, You are always in my thoughts, especially today. I think about you, your laugh, and all the things your taught me. I miss you."
"I am thinking about Wayne's family today and sending lots of love and prayer. My children and I are blessed to be part of his daughter Jenn's life. Jenn, Cameron, Mackenzie and Harrison are our family. When they feel sadness, we do too. Wayne would be so proud to know how amazing, strong and capable his beautiful daughter is. I am very proud to be her friend. I hope all of Wayne's family can share special memories to make the day easier. With much love, Marla"
"I am thinking about Wayne's family today. He would be so proud to know how special his lifeline is. His daughter Jenn is an exceptional woman who has shown me so much love and support. Words cannot even begin to describe how much she means to me. Wayne's grandchildren are also an integral part of my family's life. Cameron has been my son Sam's best friend since they met in first grade at Alcott School. We refer to them as Frick and Frack or Laurel and Hardy. They fight like brothers but love each other just the same. I am grateful they have each other to lean on. Mackenzie is my beautiful butterfly. We have a special relationship, some may call us kindred soles. We understand each other. I cannot wait to see what the future holds once her wings completely unfold. I am looking forward to being there every step of the way. And Harrison, the comic relief that we all need, a die hard Duke fan and a killer baseball player. His smile makes the world a little brighter each and every day. Wayne can rest in peace knowing that his legacy is being carried on by this beautiful family that has such a special place in my heart. Sending lots of love and prayer to the Hall Family."
"No matter how many days, months, or years pass it will always feel like too soon. I imagine you walking in the woods, or sitting at the rivers edge, or fishing at a lake. I know you have binoculars around your neck and are excited for the possibilities of what you might find or discover. I am completed comforted knowing you are at peace, but still miss you more than words could ever describe. Know that you are missed today and always."
"I think of you often and focus on the good memories. Time doesn't erase the fun we had or the things we shared. Your children are good people who understand the meaning of love and friendship. They do you proud. You are missed and with out a doubt were and still are loved."
I miss you so much and wish I could talk to you again, even just one more time. … to hear your voice. tell you how much you were loved.
"I am thinking about Jenn and the rest of Wayne's family today. I know milestones such as a birthday can be a difficult time. I am truly blessed to have Wayne's daughter Jenn in my life. Her loving friendship and incredible ability to capture the beauty of nature through her photography would warm Wayne's heart. I am sending much love and prayer to the Hall family today and every day."

"Happy Birthday dude! You will always be missed"
"I never had the pleasure of meeting Wayne Hall although he and I shared a common similarity. I can only imagine that Wayne was a special man with some incredible traits. I base this on my close friendship with his daughter Jenn. Her family is my family. My Mom's line about Jenn is "Are you real or just an angel?" Wayne can rest in peace knowing that his daughter will represent the Hall name. Sending lots of love and prayer to Wayne's family."
