The Memorial Service was held Tuesday, April 11th, 2000
at 4 pm, in front of the old zoo at Griffith Park in Los
Angeles. Arriving guests signed the guestbook and tic-tacs
were distributed in memory of Hal's amusing love for tic-tacs...
the service was videotaped and photographed for Hal's distant
relatives, who were unable to attend in person. A partial
transcript will be added to this site at a later date.
The Memorial Program:
Welcoming -- introductory statements by Chelsea and
Reminiscences -- Memories about Hal were shared by many
who attended, including Carole Hargraves (Hal's former CHN partner),
Chelsea Pfeiffer, Julia Parton, Bill, and others whom we don't
have the names of at this time... Lorelei also read aloud the
memories that have been contributed to this website by many
others who knew Hal.
Candle lighting and moment of silence.
A cappella song performed by Julia.
Release of 77 doves (one for each year of Hal's life).
