In Loving Memory of John M. Mayer

John M. Maher Nov 17, 1917 - Sept 20, 2007 Your smile is gone forever Your hands we cannot touch thank God for precious memories of one we loved so much It breaks our hearts to lose you But you did not go alone For part of us went with you The day God called you home. Lake Lawn Metairie Funeral Home Brenda thank you so much for sharing your Daddy with me. By knowing John my life was enriched with his gentleness and kindness. His love for life and the stories he told took me to an erra, a place and time of the city which no longer exist. Our travels around town were always such an adventure. I mispronounced the street names and he was always trying to figure out what street I was trying to say. Life was an adventure and we alway found our way to and from the old neighborhoods. Thank goodness for Tammye and Brenda who could guide me via the phone through some of the places we would end up. I saw and learned a lot about New Orleans from John. I learned to love this City of New Orleans through John's stories. I learned never to get my hair cut at the same time he did from the ladies on the other side of the Barborshop. I have had a hard time living down that Cajun haircut!! The angels watched out for the us when the car broken down and a tire went flat. I know with them being here on earth for us they are with him now in Heaven. I mourn the loss of a friend who I loved to spend time with. I have peace in my heart knowing he is with the loved ones and friends who went before him. Peace be with you John.

John was one of the few remaining true Southern Gentlemen. I was blessed having met him and being able to enjoy his gentle sense of humor. He will be missed.

Lucky me, I got to meet John too. He was a sweetheart. And I know how much time you two spent together, I heard many tales of what happened when you drove around with John! There is a hole in our souls when someone passes. John will be missed, and God will heal our heavy hearts.
