Page 4C NEIGHBORS Hays Free Press • October 20, 2010 HMCH Beginning his journey in E1 Paso, Texas, on January 14, 1944, he would circle the globe, including a Tour of Duty in Viet Nam, before spend- ing the remainder of his life in the Lone Star State, where he finally rested in Smithville, Texas on Monday, October 11, 2010. lay Hatch, son oflohn St. and Mary Nell Link, would graduate from Big Spring High School, and as many of his generation did, would spend three years in Viet Nam serving in the U.S. Army achieving the rank of Captain. For his heroism, a great deal spent in the Bing Duong Province, he would earn three Bronze Stars, a Purple Heart and an Army Commendation Medal. He married the love of his life, Carla Madison, and the two would travel all over Texas and Oklahoma pursuing his entrepreneurial spirit. He was an oilman like his father (inventor of the Completion Oil Tool still used in oil fields around the world today), but his true passion was golf, fishing and pool - and he rooted for his favorite teams, the Dallas Cowboys and the University of Texas Longhorns. Although he was a "man's man", he would be the first to let you know, Carla was "The Boss". Together they would write a murder mystery novel, "The Turtle Trap," and looked forward to penning a sequel before Carla passed away in 2006. After losing Carla, lay was adopted by his Smithville family that included his friends at Charlie's, La Cabana Restau- rant and Pine Forest Golf Club. They loved him and watched over him as much as he loved and cared for them. They were a different kind of"Band of Brothers (and Sisters)," and they were his rock, helping him weather many of his life's storms. Charlie and the Gang, Gina and all, your friendship meant more to him than you will ever know. He is preceded in death by his father and mother, and is survived by a sister, Ginger Dudley of Hugo, Oklahoma, brother Richard "Dick" Hatch and OBITUARIES wife, Fran, of Kissimmee, Florida and son, John Hatch and wife Rebecca, of Buda, stepdaughter Kathy Carroll in Big Spring and stepson Cody Carroll of La Grange. In addition, he is survived by several grandchildren, John Robert, Gibson and Hannah Hatch of Buda, Caitlin Perkins of Austin, Chelsy Nanny of Odessa, BrennaWells of Big Spring, and many nieces and nephews. A memorial service was held October 15. Jay was interred at the Dallas-Fort Worth National Military Cemetery October 20 where he was joined with Carla ("The Boss") and they will finally be "Together Forever". In lieu of flowers, the family requests contributions can be made to the American Legion Post 180, P.O. Box 28, Smithville, Texas 78957.

When it comes to the number of retirement accounts you have, the saying "more is better" is not necessarily true. In fact, if you hold multiple accounts with various brokers, it can be difficult to keep track of your investments and to see if you're properly diversified.* At the very least, multiple accounts usually mean multiple fees. Bringing your accounts to Edward Jones could help solve all that. Plus, one statement can make it easier to see if you're moving toward your goals. * . . . i D,versfflcabon does not guarantee a profit or protect against loss.
