I remember all the fun times at Harbor Park. Your Mom always had a smile on her face. John, Melodee and family, my thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this difficult time. Your Mom was a very special lady and I know she will be missed very much.

Mrs. Hayden has been my neighbor for 30 years. I loved her just as if she were family. We had some wonderful times, and I can’t put into words how much I miss her. She would send me beautiful flower arrangements and I loved them. I have my memories of a wonderful lady who was my friend. To Mr. Johnny, you were a wonderful son, I admire how you took care of your Mom and all the fun things you did together. May God bless and comfort you and your family now and in the days ahead. Mrs. Hayden, you will always be in my heart.

We love you and will always miss you Ganaw. A new light has entered heaven, to shine angels upon their way, for you were an angel on earth as well, and will be able to bring dawn to each new day. You comforted us all through thick and thin, telling us it didn’t matter if we lose or win. As long as we had fun playing the game. She enjoyed her time here with us and brought great joy to all who knew her, and may she now rest and enjoy time with those who have already gone, no longer being in pain. – Love Philip, Marianne, Johnathan, and Skyler.
