Memories Timeline


  1. Melba, I'm so sorry to read about Glyn. You know he was always one of my favorite people. I will always remember all the good times we had with the NCR gang. Remember how we would always run into the two of you on Sundays after church at the Picadilly. We've been gone from the Lake Charles area about nine years now, so I guess it has been that long since I've seen you. My love to you and the kids. Always, Nan

  2. To the Hayes family,How the time flies! Even though I've been gone from LC for almost 24 years I have thought frequently of the wonderful times shared with the Hayes family. Seems like only yesterday we were hanging around the Hayes' home listening to Jimmy Buffet, getting annoyed by Dinah, Kaki looking out for us and enjoying Glyn and Melba's cooking. If we got bored we'd throw an 8 track in the green Gremlin and take to the streets…LOL. What a car! I'm sure Glyn and Melba enjoyed Randy and my many escapades over the years. What great times!!…and we NEVER got arrested! Without a doubt all those parental prayers were answered. 14 grandchildren and 27 great-grandchildren????!! WOW! Somebody has been busy! What a wonderful family!Randy, call me or email me your contact information so I can visit next time I'm in LC.Love to you all and thanks again for such incredible memories as we reflect on Glyn's great and wonderful life….GOD BLESS YOU! Mike

  3. What a MAN! As kids, he never let us go by without engaging us and asking all about us. He really cared about others and had a good understanding of people. Raised some neat kids, too. Love to you all and can't wait til that day we see him again! Blessings, David Womack
