    I have known Bill Hayes and his very long time friend, Dana Whittenton for many years. Dana preceded him in death a while back and he missed her terribly. Bill was a gentle, soft spoken and honest man. He was a good friend and will be missed.

  2. Jim Beazley III, Forrest City, Arkansas says

    I met bill in 1962 and had contact with him off and on over the years. We became close friends while attending Kiwanis Club meetings over the past several years. His very close friend, Dana Whittenton, of may years, came with him sometime. They were a loving couple. Dana passed away in the past year and he missed her terribly. Bill was a good, gentle, soft spoken man. Bill will be missed.
