We certainly consider it a privilege and honor to have met such a kind, gentle, and caring man. He's now getting "good directions" and with "real" angels in Heaven right now, Pat, and our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
To the Mayfield Family: May God wrap His comforting arms around each of you as you grieve the loss of your loved one. And to you, Pat, may you find peace in the knowledge that your lifetime loved one is now an angel watching over you. May God Bless you.
It was a great privelidge knowing you these past 4 years. Thanks for all the help you gave me. You WILL be missed so much……..
Goodbye John. Though we never had the pleasure of meeting face to face, I know you as a kind and loving husband, father, grandfather and friend to so many people who have been blessed to have known you. God has richly blessed your life of service to Him.
My world has been a better place for having known John Mayfield. He has always been an honest, kind, caring man who was a delight to be around. He will be missed by his many friends.
Pat, Jana and Mary Ann became fast cyber bridge buddies. Nothing would do but to meet for a holiday together, including our husbands. What a wonderful time we enjoyed, taking John and Pat on their first? boat ride, a special show, leaving tickets at the hotel, good things to eat and friends forever melded in that meeting. Angles watching over us all, with special help from John. Goodbye, for now good friend
