  1. Hal kept my husband, Ed Murphy, up-to-date about the Masonic Events. He always was well-informed about my husband’s and my medications. He knew when to call us to get permission for him to call our physicians. He was very friendly and concerned about our health. When he left Stop and Shop Pharmacy, it was time for retirement for him, but not us. He was a good man. He was a good person. He was a good friend.

  2. Hal has been missed at the Stop & Shop pharmacy in Bedford. Many times he went above and beyond to make sure I got my migraine medication. He was fun to talk to and tease. I loved his big smile and his laugh. I hope the time he had after leaving Bedford were happy and healthy.

  3. We so appreciated Hal’s friendly personality and his help and advice through the years. We also remember his part in the days at the firehouse helping to organize and helping with the day you could bring your child for identification tapes and other items. Hal has been and will be missed!
