  7. Charlie, Hope and Faith,
    I am so sorry to hear of Mrs. Hayes passing. She was an amazing teacher, and I will never forget the moment when I realized that my “Mrs. Hayes” was the wife of Kandy’s pilot, Charlie Hayes! How we laughed and that’s how I will remember her. May you cherish her spirit, love of life, Lord and especially her family, until you see her again.

  13. Charlie….I was so sad to hear about Billie. She was one of my favorite “NASA people” and such a light in this world! I’m sorry to have missed the memorial service…I was out of town. She was wonderful to me and the boys at David’s Life Celebration. Please let me know if I can do anything for you.
