"May you continue to rest in paradise Mrs. Hayward, and thanks again for blessing us with children like Tony, that show the type of Mom you where. God Bless."
"Dear Grandma, you have always been there for me whenever I needed you. I will miss our chats, your advice, and hearing your voice. I will continue to make you proud; and I want you to know that the love you have shown me will be given forward. I'm sure your smiling as you continue to watch over all of us...Love you always."
"Grandma, Thank you for everything you've done. The impact you have left on this world will be felt for years to come. I miss you very much. Love always."
"Ma Hayward as me and my sons Christopher and
Frank affectionally called her was all about family being first. We are sadden by her loss and we will truly miss her. Gone but not forgotten, we love you Ma Hayward."
Thank you so much for being in my life and allowing me to be a part of your family for so many years. You welcomed me into your home like I was one of your grandchildren. I smile when I think of you...You are in my heart forever and the hearts of so many of us... God bless you and I know that you will be looking down on us."
"In my spirit I can hear the Lord say, "WELL DONE", my good and faithful servant; enter into the gates of Heaven.
Until we meet again.
"Dear Margaret, peace be with. We never meet - but heard a lot about you through your Son Tony. Daisy, RE and Ramon are praying that God will continue to bless you as he put you in the arms of his Blessed Mother, who will hold close to her, with much love, as a mother would do with a new born and bring you safely home. Our prayers are with you always until we meet, God Bless you - Ramon & Family"
"Mom, thank you for being our mother, giving us life was just the beginning of all the sacrifices you would make for me and Buddy. Thank you for always being proud of us and everything we did and who we have become today. And who we have become today. We are the men we are today because of the lifetime, effort, sacrifice, love and devotion you gave to us. Thank you for never, never telling us no. I believe a child can never pay their parents back for what they have done for that. I only hope when it is all said and done that someday I too will be compared to my mom and dad as he was just like them.
Mom, thanks for the memories, I love you very much!"
"Rest in paradise Mom Hayward. ..Gonna miss your visits to Tony and Carol in Virginia and your chocolate chip cookies. .and all those stories how spoiled Tony and Buddy were. ...when your walking down heavens road and see my mom give her a hug from me. ..Love You"
"Matthew 5:4 “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.”"
"We miss you granny, Alexis Meechie Trey and Chase"
"We love you mom and you will always be in our prayers, please continue to pray the rosary for all of us."
