Did not know THIS Mr. Hayes, except remembering how distinguished he looked in his pictures. Rarely did I see him in person. although I believe I did see him in his military uniform at some point. Impressive. indeed! But very good memories of his Mom, Mrs. Valerie and Dad, Mr. Albert. There were very elegant people to me as a youngster then as a young married. She, especially, was such a sweet, soft spoken, always well dressed true lady. I can see and hear them both right now. Raised two great sons. Thinking of you at this time, Bill and family.
