Hatley, you are one of the most genuine friends I have here in mylot. I find your life stories honest and pure, frank and candid, with no pretenses, no hypocrisy. And you are not afraid to narrate even if others think they may be faulty. You recall from memory and you relate from the heart. You are so human and yet I know you are an angel, too, to many of us. I am sure God has a special place for you in heaven. I hope I could join you there, too.
