    To Hayward and my family: My Heart is partially broken, Haywood has been in my life since 1978 , I Loved him then and I love him still. Whenever I think of Frank I think of Haywood, and vice versa. I don’t take the death of someone I’ve loved for 45 years to good, but my tears are not wasted on you…..So , so long big brother In law , please rest in peace, if there is another side, I know I will see you , and Frank, My Mother, my Brother and all the rest of my Family again. PEACE and LOVE Sharon ❤️
