Questions to: Jean Hayward, [email protected]

I was so sorry to hear about the passing of Dr. Hayward. He was the main reason I chose UNC to do my neurology residency. He was so nurturing of his residents and I can't imagine a better teacher. He was greatly admired by his colleagues and patients. I loved his sense of humor too. He truly was a great man with so many attributes that the world will not be the same without him . My condolences to his family.

The shorebirds and wild ponies of Taylor's Creek and Carrot Island have lost a quiet friend and observer.

You will be missed by so many, for so many different reasons. If any of us are able to live a life only a fraction as full as yours, we should consider ourselves to have been very fortunate indeed.

Here's to everlasting orange sunsets and a glass of Chardonnay, Jim. You were dearly loved and you are most definitely missed.

My condolences to the family of Dr. James Hayward. I had the honor of being one of his neurology residents at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. He was my mentor, unmatched source of knowledge, and an exceptional human being. In his passing we are losing caring physician, skilled teacher, and a renaissance man.

A great tree has fallen in the forest.

Jim's generosity, kindness, and encouragement will always live on within us. We offer our sincere condolences to family, friends, and students.

"Shelter him in a place of brightness, a place of verdure, a place of repose; whence all sickness, sighing, and sorrow have fled away; and the sight of thy countenance rejoiceth all thy Saints from all the ages."

--Tom Tunney and Rodolfo Arroyo

It is truly a blessing James lived a long life. I know he will forever live on in the hearts of all that he has touched. May God comfort you and give you peace.
