  4. I am so sorry to hear about your Mom’s passing, she was a wonderful lady. Always kind and generous when I stopped by and never yelled at us when we were being bad at your house on Cohan, even though we thoroughly would have deserved it. Your Mom will be deeply missed by all who knew her, I know your Dad met her at the gates with a huge smile and a strong hug. They are together now and happy and you will see them again, hopefully not any time soon. Your parents will never be far away if you keep them in your heart. I miss you and think of our memories often, my GOD did we have a good time….. I hope you are doing well. Please accept my most sincere condolences and please tell your brothers I said hello.

    Sincerely,

    William R. Hays
