A bunch of 18 year old kids kind of thrown together at Lockbourne AFB, in 1965. We quickly formed an inalienable bond that has lasted for more than 50 years. "Luie", as we all knew him, was an integral part of our Air Force lives together, both as a friend and trusted crewmember. I am so grateful to have finally reconnected with him after so many years. Chris, thank you so much for loving and caring for my brother..

Chris,I have procrastinated in finding the words to comfort a dear friend who has just lost her companion. I have lost loved ones,but can't even begin to imagine the black cloud of loneliness hovering over your heart. Dick was such a wonderful guy,so thoughtful and so much fun to be with! When ever we go by the fields of the Madison airport,Joe reminiscences about how he,Dick and Sandy splayed all those pheasants. And how innocent it was to be shooting guns where the planes took off!!!! It was Dick that got me going on Facebook! So I was shocked when I went on and saw that he had passed. I have many regrets now as I usually called Dick on his b'day to catch up but this year crept up and slipped by me. Also a year ago we missed seeing you two. Joe and I are so sorry for your loss...we weep with you in Dick's death and share sorrows. Our hearts and prayers go out to you and yours

To the family and friends of Mr. Haller. I enjoyed reading about his life and his passions. I am deeply sorry for your loss. It is a tragedy to lose a loved one in death. I know that he will be missed. The Bible mentions that not only will God help you through this situation, but it also helps us to appreciate that we will have the opportunity to see our loved ones again. Read Psalms 34:18 and also John 5:28,29. I hope these scriptures can provide a sense of comfort for you and your family. All of you are in my prayers...
