Jeanne, I am so sorry to hear of Bill's passing and for me to respond so late. I just found out today. As you know I first met you and Bill in 1976 in Sarasota and we have been friends ever since. Bill undoubtedly was one of the greatest hoteliers, restauranteurs, entrepreneurs, and hosts of our era. He was genuine, fun, socially adept and up to any challenge and a person to be counted on. He was a great leader

Dear Jeanne, Billy and Tommy,

I got up pn August 18th and something was wrong, I wasn't myself, I was sad, and I didn't know why, there seemed to be a dent in the universe I didn't know about that was impacting my day. Then, turning on my phone, I got the news, Bill Hall had passed. I felt it before I knew it. Bill Hall was that impactful. I and my entire family are heartbroken for your family.

Judge Blatt first introduced me to Bill when he was managing a hotel at Hilton Head not far from the Judge’s house. From that day to this, I have never known anybody who brought more joy to more people than Bill Hall. I have always thought the most important thing a person can do in life is to make other people happy. Bill certainly did that every day.

In doing so, he gave us much more than his superb

I have so many amazing memories of time spent at Halls with this family. I was lucky enough to spend time outside Halls with Bill and Jeanne also.

To the entire Hall family. Bill was a gracious great friend. I still have a group photo of Bill and many prominent business men friends assembled for a dinner at Halls. He will always be bigger than life to us all. May God comfort you Genie, Stacey, Billy and Tommy and all your family during this difficult time. Whatever, whenever, or wherever I am needed don't hesitate to contact me. We love you all.

I have only met Bill in passing when entering his restaurant, but the hospitality he showed my wife and I is something I will never forget. Halls is my favorite restaurant in the world, and it is because of the service and love that is shown as soon as you walk through the door. Bill and his family have made so many occasions extra special because of the love shown. I am so sorry to the family for your loss.

Bill and I have know each other since we were five years old. We spent time in our youth in Sausalito and never did lose contact with each other over the years. Bill was the masterful host. He was a gentleman and was the life of the party. He will always be remembered by me as a true friend and will be missed by all of us who knew him for such a long time. A toast to you Bill.
