As expressions of sympathy flowers are graciously accepted or donations in Hayward’s memory may be made to the Mazol Shriners.

I, Seana would like to thank Lee Anne for being my rock & Frances for being my “mother”, love you beyond words. You both got me through all of this.

Fadder was devoted to the Masonic Lodge and the Mazol Shriners and loved for Christmas time to come so he could have the annual Christmas party for the developmentally abled residents of Gander.

Hayley’s fondest memories of fadder were him getting up in the morning, opening the dining room window & hollering ‘Mornin’ World.” He had a silly way about him that always put a smirk on my face. He worked hard for all of us girls & mudder. Camping at Windmill Bight, well, we camped, he left us there. He will be greatly missed. I love you Big H.
