Howard Hayes placed in hospice care
Hayes Family patriarch and bass singer Howard Hayes has been battling cancer. This weekend, he was hospitalized, and the doctors determined that the cancer was overtaking attempts at chemotherapy. He has been moved to hospice care. Hayes Family acquaintances on Facebook request prayers for the family, as it appears that his passing is imminent.
He had continued to tour with the family through about a week ago, though he was feeling so sick that he was only able to sing for a song or two. (On top of everything else, a bus breakdown left the family and the bus stranded for days!)
UPDATE, 9/6/2011 (9:54 PM): Howard Hayes has passed away.
