Guest Book

  • mike Stiers Saddened to hear of Ralph's passing. He and Arlette were staunch supporters of Batavia Music programs in the day. My kind thoughts go to three of my favorite BJHS musicians and their families.
  • Carmen Beatriz There are people who leave deep and undeliable marks in our lives. So was Mr. Hall. He was part of the most pleasant moments that I enjoyed in the USA, and since I returned -34 years ago- we have kept in touch. I have always remembered his kindness, affability, and especially his great sense of humor. He was part of my family and became my children´s grandpa. This is a sad news but I am sure that I will embrace both him and mom Arlette again when Jehovah restores life to our loved ones, here, on earth in perfect conditions. Now, they are in the best place of the universe... Jehovah´s memory. My heartfelt condolences for Lance, Alice, Pennie, Rob, Heidi, Clayton, Erick, Hazel and all the children. May you get God´s peace! Beatriz The venezuelan daugher
