I am so sorry for your loss. I met your lovely Mother about 15 years ago on a trip to North Carolina researching the Hayes family history. Your sweet Mother was so kind and so helpful. Unfortunately I was unable to return to visit her again but I am so glad I got the opportunity to meet her. Truly a wonderful lady.
