Although we rarely kept in touch, I will always have very fond memories of playing Little League Baseball back in Franklin in the 1960's with Hal and Lamon and Larry and all of the St. Mary Bank ball players..... Moved to Lafayette in 1966 and things ain't been the same since ... I will miss my old friend Hal... A good man with a quick smile. Our loss; Heaven's gain.

Posted by Matt Angers - Lafayette, LA - Friend   February 22, 2017

50 years ago my entire family moved to Lafayette and I will never forget the feelings of emptiness that I felt when we left Franklin. I hated to leave. The whole Junca family are great friends of the Angers' and some of my fondest memories date back to the 1960's playing Little League Baseball for St. Mary Bank - back in the day. Hal and me and David Naquin and Lamon Miller and Fletcher and Larry Lombardo and others. Life is short; Heaven is close. We will miss you Hal!
