My Father and Stepmother, Aida Valez Hatley, were taken from us on May 8, 2003. Due to the cicumstances of the collision, Hatley's Law began. My Father was a good Dad, he loved fishing; loved his kids and most of all loved his family. My daddy served in the US Navy, was a billiards player, skydiver, pilot, mechanic, loved to ride, loved his family most of & was a Christian. Aida was a high ranking officer in the salvation army.

At the time of the collison, my dad and Aida had recently been married, but from what I knew of her she was a fine Christian woman. Not a day goes by that myself and sibling don't think of them.

I love you Daddy...I will always miss you.
