Born at 33 weeks he weighed 7 lbs. 2 oz and was 20 inches long. Although Hayes never spent any time with us on earth, he was very loved and touched many lives.

His aunts and uncles: Daniel and Amanda Gilles (Riverside, IA) and Jonathan and Jennifer Yuska (Cedar Rapids, IA). And cousins: Eli, Leo, Elliott, Isla Gilles and Landon, Sydney Yuska. He was preceded in death by his fraternal great grandparents and maternal great grandmother. Hayes will always remain his parents’ precious baby and Grayson’s little brother, and they will hold him again in heaven one day.
