We remember and are grateful for the special friendship between Kevin’s parents, Marie and Wendell, and Wint and JoAnn. They were great neighbors and friends and were always so wonderful to include Ted and make him feel special.

Winston is my first cousin; his mother was my dad, Hardy Mayo’s sister. I remember him as a friendly, handsome man with sparkling brown eyes, & a ready smile. Although I am 22 years younger, I remember my parents thought he was special. I’m sorry no Mayos are living in Kerens to see Aunt Wilma & Uncle Cecil’s boy Home. He has joined them all.

Jo Ann, I have so many sweet memories of you and Wint (with a T) I couldn't begin to relate them! Such sweet times we had on Chapman Ranch, raising our kids, being involved in school activities and just being neighbors! I love you still! Martha Jean
