I am so sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Hasty family at this difficult time. May the memories of Eston help you find peace.
Peggy, Gayla, & Rick, my thoughts and prayers are with you now. He was a real gem.
Eston, I met you only once that I remember–at the wedding of your son, Rick, to my niece, Laurie. But even though our paths never crossed again, I can say that I knew you to be a man of honor, strength and integrity because you served your country with devotion; raised a fine son who deeply and thoroughly respected you; and earned the love of my niece, who does not grant her affections lightly. Eston, your life mattered so very much. Thank you for living it in such a way that you will be dearly missed by those who loved you most and knew you best.
What a wonderful legacy and example Mr hasty has left for us all. If only every man could be the husband, father and grandfather he is. My deepest condolences. Bart
