We just received this press release, verbatim, expressing sympathy for the death of Hal White. I post it below without further comment:
PRESS ALERT FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE March 29, 2013 Jackson suffered a major loss yesterday in the passing of Hal White, a business owner and a founder to the internationally recognized St. Paddy's Day parade, an annual event here in Jackson, MS. Along with my husband and son, we were able to participate as a family in our first Hal and Mal's St. Paddy's Day Parade, and we thoroughly enjoyed sharing this experience. Hal's St. Paddy's Day parade vision has led to one of the most successful events in this City. Hal will be truly missed. My heart and prayers go out to Hal's family and all those impacted by his passing.
