  2. The boys and I would like to extend our condolences to your entire family and we have you all in our prayers. We didn’t know Michael like we of course know Jane, however she spoke so highly of him often and all her family. I hope you all can find peace in your memories of Michael. Love, Dana, Zachary and Austin Rzepka

  3. Marie and I became great friends in high school, and have remained friends for years now, and this is how I know Michael.

    If I have memories of Michael when we were young it would most likely be of him fleeing as us girls hung out. But as we became adults we could all have fun together! Often my sister and I would hang out with the Hall kids. I would see him at gatherings, weddings, epic Halloween parties, a canoe trip, and lots of his neice’s and nephew’s birthday parties. I saw that he was a great man, humble, kind, and pretty darn funny. To be honest, and to Michael’s dismay, I was also quilty of plotting with Marie to introduce him to single ladies!

    My heart breaks for Gary, Theresa, and all the Hall kids. I pray for their peace in this difficult time. You are in my thoughts and prayers and I love you all.

  4. Our sincere condolences to you, Gary and Lori. Our prayers are for you and all of your family during this very sad and difficult time. May God surround you with His love, peace and comfort.

  5. Aunt Theresa and family ~

    Thinking of you all today. I am so sorry and saddened by the loss of Michael. I will always cherish the childhood memories I have of all of us growing up together. He was always so kind and smart. As teenagers, Michael always had a big bottle of Coca-Cola with him. So, we will be crackin’ open a cold bottle of Coca-Cola in his honor!

    Rest Easy, Michael! 🕊

    Wish we could be there. XoXo

  8. Dear Gary and Lori,
    I am so sorry for your loss. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I will not be able to attend the visitation or funeral, but will ask for God’s blessings for your family.

    • Gary and Lori and families. I am so sorry for your loss. Forty is so young to pass into God’s loving arms. Take comfort in knowing what a wonderful person who touched so many lives in his short time here on Earth. In the words of Dr. Seuss, “Death ends a life; Not a relationship.”

      • Knowing that a good son is in heaven is comforting but our heart hurts when a child dies before his parents. I pray that you will feel the love of Christ surround you as you go through this difficult time. May God give you special memories of his life.

  9. Dearest Cousin Gary and family:

    We are keeping you in our warmest thoughts as you navigate through this extremely challenging time. We are wishing you hope and healing when you are ready. May Michael enjoy the next journey.

    Sending Peace and Love from your Florida family,
    Aunt Dar, Cousins Linny, Julie, Ingrid, Kristen, Patti and Jennifer
