To my dear friend, Lennie, I will truly miss you. You were a lifelong friend. You were there when I need a friend to talk to in days gone by. Heaven gained one more angel.

Michael, Becky, always remembering Granny's pretty hair, kind words, and good cooking. Most of all always remembering she loved God, and she let her light shine.
Michael, as you told me one time there is only one Physician, and Granny is with him now. Becky, she loved you more than you will ever know. Becky I love you and always will. Love Mary Ann Ayer and Joey Ayer...(buckwheat)

Granny.. I don't even know what to say. It seems so surreal. You've always been there and now you are gone. One thing that I have always wanted to say, but couldn't find the words to say it even the last few days. I want to thank you for adopting my dad. Without that unconditional love, heaven only knows where he or I would be at this time. You have entered through the gates and are seeing things that we can only imagine. I love you.

Mom, You are now in a glorified body with no more pains or suffering. We will miss you here, but know you are where you need to be now. Thank you so much for adopting me 57 years ago and raising me in a loving, caring, Christian home. I Love You! Michael
