You will be missed dearly Deputy Inspector General Hale, you were a great mentor to me and made me feel at home and at ease, you were someone I looked up to and wanted to be and you treated me like one of the family and that meant more than anything to me. You’ve impacted so many young lives including mine and in such a great way for a fact. I know the city Decatur, Decatur High School and my heart ache with your passing you were absolutely the greatest. God Speed, Rest In Peace.
