Hello from Cabot, Vermont. Your father/grandfather was good friends with my Dad, Ben Sessel. They were both on the board of TWA together and I always thought “Mr. Hall” was very down to earth and a lovely man. (As was my Dad.) When I was in college (graduated ’68) my Mom died of cancer. She had wanted her ashes “spread over Bermuda” where my parents met and often vacationed. Daddy found out such an action was illegal, but somehow Mr. Hall arranged for it to happen. Of all my Dad’s friends, I remember him the best – and he was the best.
