I will always remember "Grandma Hayes"! Even though she wasn't, she loved Billy as if he was another grandson. She would always remind me about him trying to talk her into giving him one more hotdog! He promised not to tell me she did! Oh she would laugh! Going to miss you so much but glad to know you are at home now.
