Dear Hayward Family,
I just seen the message of your Mom passing so sorry for all of you, I wish I could have seen you at the Funeral Home to express my words in person but I work 2nd shift and just found out after work. You were so blessed to have such a Beautiful & Godly Mother that loved all of you so very much. I always enjoyed seeing her at the Belden Family Reunions every August, she always had such a sweet spirit and caring concern about everyone! Only time can separate you right now but we all look forward to meeting again in Heaven. Hold onto all those precious memories of her until then- Love and prayers , Jody(Hageman) Howard & Family

Our deepest sympathy to your family. Pat (and Dick) were so much more than just our neighbors. They were more like family and grandparents to our kids. They shared their life with us and we have so many cherished memories with them and their families! We are so blessed to have known them and their family and be able to share 30 plus years of life together. Truly Pat (and Dick) were a gift from God to our family!
