The world was a brighter place when God sent His angel, Leslie Colleen Hays, to us for two short days.
Born Thursday, January 12, 2012 and returned to heaven Saturday, January 14, 2012; Leslie received an outpouring of love during her brief time here on earth. Those blessed to call Leslie family are her parents, Christopher Taylor Hays and Jacinda Moyer Hays; paternal grandparents, Charles E. and Laminda F. Hays; maternal grandparents, Scott A. and Carol M. Moyer; paternal great-grandmothers, Mildred L. Hays and Grace I. Taylor; maternal great-grandparents, Charles H. and Lois J. Moyer and Thomas and Mary C. Samuel; as well as many aunts and uncles. Memorial contributions can be made to Liberty Godparent Home, P.O. Box 4199, Lynchburg, VA 24502. The family will host a Celebration of Leslie's Life, Wednesday, January 18, 2012, 2 p.m. at Radford Baptist Church with Rev. Karl Hofheinz officiating. Interment will follow in the church cemetery.
