I got to know and admire "Grandma" through April, my leader, mentor and friend at work. April's strength, compassion and zest for life are a testament to her Grandma's legacy. Ms. Hayes presence will be missed, but her beautiful impact on our world is indelible. My heartfelt sympathy and prayers of comfort for her family and friends, and to her special doggie pal, Cocoa.
