I am a granddaughter of Marie Trahan Mayer, Lee and Marie were sister and brother. My mother, Gladys Mayer Meche, talked about Lee from time to time. I did not realize the big age difference. At any rate, please accept my sincere sympathy in the loss of your father. I only wish I had known him. Hopefully, one day we can have a reunion of Mayers and get to know each other. My prayers are with you at this time.
