Epilogue: A Stunning Revelation


I have written my memoirs to tell my story to family, friends, and especially my descendants. It can also be used as a history book for the Hay namesake. These memoirs are my recollection of life events, described to the best of my knowledge and memory. I recognize that some event memories may differ from another's memory. My memoirs are not intended to offend, harm, or deceive anyone.

P.S. Thank you, Karen (the apple of my eye), for your enduring patience and the encouragement when I wavered. You are and always will be my ROCK!

I guarantee that my tale will keep you on the edge of your seat. But, before I begin, you might want to use the bathroom, because once I start, you won’t want me to stop.
