My memories of Mrs. Hayes go back, just a bit.  I remember her inviting us to swim in the pool, before it moved to Reeceville Rd, and her letting us play with Skip's matchboxes while he was at school. I remember her ringing the bell, to call everyone in.  My most precious memory is of her listening to my memorized Bible verses and singing with her at Jet Cadets.  So thankful to have know this faithful generous lady.

Your loss is your whole world today,the hardest day to get thru. Your hurt feelings will not go away, if your're needing a friend, which you are so fortunate to  have so many but on whom you'll depend, call me  and all anytime, any day.  I'm thinking of you and I care.  If you have feeling that you're wanting to share.  God will always listen and never will he turn his back on you..  Nancy is in a much better place.  She feels no pain, God had blessed her by taking it all away and taking her to her true home.
