Carter, Bridgette & Hannah, I’m so sorry to just now be hearing of Halle’s passing. I met your mom at the rec center in La Jolla & loved spending time with you all at the beach, the zoo, Seaworld, and music classes. Your mom was so fun and a good friend. My son Pierce has good memories of his first buddies Cart & Brigie. Much love to you all. Noelle & Reed Mayne
I met, and quickly loved Haley when they moved in next to me in the early 2000’s .We spent a lot of time together and stayed in touch after they moved away. Always picked up where we left off with each phone call. She was a very strong woman with loving her children being her main focus. Heaven has gained a beautiful angel!
