Memorial for Joyce Hays Hawkins
I did a little research and have added a memorial page for Joyce Hawkins. It would be nice if you want to add the picture you put on Ray's memorial to her page too. (That way you'll get credit for the photo and you can add any message you want.)

Hi Gracie!
It's nice to know about your grandpa's grandchildren. If you would like to email/write me directly my email address is

It might be better than to leave messages on a public space like findagrave. Too many people can see what you are writing and that may not be safe for you. Ask your parents :)

Thank you so much for your wishes for my health - they worked! My foot is MUCH better now.

If you decide to write to me at my email be sure to put something in the subject line so I will not make a mistake and miss it in the junk mail.

Take care of yourself!

Ray Hawkins
Sorry, I'm a little confused by your last message. I know I saw his obit in the Indpls paper, but they no longer have them available that far back online. That's where I would have gotten the cemetery name. If I remember correctly his wife survived him, but I believe she may have died. Are you saying they are buried together? I did not know he had grandchildren, but I didn't know Ray except thru my brother who was a very close friend of Ray's. My brother used to drive him to his Dr. appts/dialysis (I think). The last contact I had with Ray was when he left a phone message of sympathy after my brother died (I had phoned him to let him know of the death but had to leave a msg - I didn't want him to find out from reading an obituary). I assume you are one of his that right?

As for taking a photo (if that's possible), that will have to wait a while longer since yesterday I had to have foot surgery and I'll be limited in walking for a while again...darn!

Again, let me know if you'd like me to transfer his memorial to you. That way, if you wish to change anything or add to his bio you'd have access to do so. I have NO problem releasing a memorial to a family member.

Ray Hawkins
Indeed, the Ray I knew went to at least high school (Shortridge) in Indianapolis, IN. Am pretty certain he was in the class of 1952, then went to IU - know he was on the swim team there.

I would be more than happy to transfer his memorial page to you, if you'd like :)

I had planned to try to get a headstone photo, but health has limited my doing that so far. (If you are not in Indpls, and would like me to keep it on my agenda I will try to get that photo sometime in the near future.)

The photo you attached is lovely and touching!

Oops...complete sentences are always nice. What I intended to write was that I noticed you'd attached a picture of Ray to his memorial page.

Raymond "Speed" Hawkins
I noted you've attached to the memorial of Raymond "Speed" Hawkins. Are you related? Ray was a nearly life-long friend of my brother.
