A GARDEN PATH was sent by David, Kathy, Kennedy and Price Stewart.

Mayford was a great man with a gentle soft spoken spirit. I can still see his woodworking shop in the basement where he used to love spending time working on anything to do with wood. We still have several frames and tables he worked on for us. We are thinking and praying for your family. - David, Kathy, Kennedy & Price Stewart
