We were sad to hear that Hayden had passed. I am glad i was able to meet him at Happy Joe's in June. Hayden had a tough battle and he fought hard. God bless Hayden and the Daufeldt family and enjoy the wonderful memories of his life.

I most recently saw Hayden at the benefit at the Brew. He wasn't feeling well, but was there anyway. It was awesome to see the community pull together in support of the Daufeldt family. I'm very sorry for your loss.

A boy who never showed any signs of slowing down smiles and happiness and little bashful giggles. He was always such a cutie.

Carrie Mosley on Aug 7, 2017

Hayden had a Laugh that filled the room, he always had to come in the back door of the resturant to see the vacuum, say Hi to me and then find Jenni for his pickles. He Loved to tickle us and chase Jenni around.
Hayden has touched so many lives in so many ways in such a short 4 years. God sure did gain a wonderful Angel.
My deepest sympathies to the Daufeldt Family

Kathy L Daniels on Aug 7, 2017

Pat, Cory and family, I am so sorry to hear about your loss. The loss of a life is hard to bear. At such a young age it's simply unbearable. God has a plan just as he did when he took my granddaughter home. I have no doubt she will hold his hand and keep him company till we see them again. Take comfort in the good times you were given with him.

Denise Darting on Aug 7, 2017

Dearest Pat seems like God needed a few new angels this weekend. Mom went to him on Saturday and now Hayden. God Bless all of you I send you my prayers. Love you Pat.

Marisela Vega on Aug 7, 2017

My very first memory of Hayden was on Kendra's face when we found out she was pregnant-proud mama. And when they walked him throughout HyVee when he was itty bitty-everyone would say "He looks just like daddy." Cory's face lit up every time. When I would say hello he would have a scrunched up nose with his pacifier in his mouth...I will never forget that goofy little smile. I will miss you buddy and Sophia will too. You will forever be "baby Hayden" to Sophia.

CandleI am lost for words. This is so sad, specially when someone that young leaves us. My thoughts, heart and prayers go to his mom and dad, and the rest of the family. May he R.I.P.

John Morford on Aug 7, 2017

Hayden's laugh, his favorite cart at the shop, his affinity for pickles and whipped cream (not together) and how he liked to sneak up on me and TICKLE ME!

Arleen on Aug 7, 2017

My favorite memory of Hayden is when he have me a Big Hug in Hy Vee. His hug will always be around me. God bless you Hayden, you're Home in Heaven. Hugs

Julie Paulsen on Aug 7, 2017
