  • John Theis I smile every time I think of hanging out at the Mayer house in the late 70’s. What great memories. Orlyn was such a wonderful wife, mother and person. Never once saw her in a bad mood. Took many life lessons learned while being around that family and I truly believe it shaped me as a father and husband. My condolences to the whole Mayer family.
