I always thought of Uncle Mayo as the life of any gatherings. He was always interested in others, had a generosity of heart...and what an infectious laugh! He had a lot of qualities I would like to carry with me.

Mayo was always such fun and was a wonderful storyteller. He always asked about what was going in my classroom and how kids are different today. I will miss him when I make my trips to Viginia.

Mayo will be truly missed in the Madison community. His jokes, always positive attitude, and caring nature will always be part of my memories of Mayo. I'm sure he'll find a fine golf course in heaven as well.

Our deepest sympathy go out to you and your family. Our family will never forget all the wonderful times we shared with Mayo, especially with my oldest children. May the peace of God be with you today and always.
