    It is sad to hear that. She was a real good teacher. She will be missed by all of her past students. May God bless the family. We will always remember you.

    Ms Hayes taught all three of my children. She was loved by all of us. She always had an encouraging word and a smile. I am so sorry for your loss.

    I’m saddened to hear of the loss of my dear sweet friend. She was a great co worker and teacher to my children. She will be greatly missed. My prayers are with the family during this difficult time.

  8. To say she touched our lives is an understatement. Mrs. Hayes was a fixture and a shining example of what mad do many of us want our own kids in Hazen Schools. You could say she was loved, but Mrs. Hayes was adored. Aaron, my prayers are with you. All be it involuntary, thank you for sharing your amazing mother with all of us.

  13. Aaron, I am so saddened by the loss of your sweet mother. There is no hurt like the hurt of losing your mom. I loved teaching with her. She was a great friend and a wonderful co-worker. Hazen Elementary has lost a wonderful teacher and friend. Praying the LORD will wrap HIS loving arms around you and give you the peace and comfort that only HE can. Prayers for my sweet second grader.

    To the Family , May God grant you peace and strength during this time. I was very close to her. I learned about what it meant to care as a human being regardless of race. I had a chance to stay with her during a summer break. I shall never forget how she welcomed me into her family. It has been many years but you can never forget someone who encouraged you to be and do your best. I am a Teacher/ Director of my own childcare in Texas. I know she had a lot to do with shaping my direction in the field that will have a profound impact in children lives , the way she impacted mine. She really was Special and One of a Kind. God Bless and keep . Amen

    Some people can teach, some can’t. Some people can teach well. Mrs. Hayes was one of those who could teach well as her track record of more than 40 years of dedicated service to the Hazen School District proved. Her record of service speaks for itself and attests to her legacy that will be
    well remembered by her many students. May God bless Aaron and Mrs. Hayes many friends and acquaintances during this time of sorrow.
