I am so sorry to hear the passing of Mr Dayhoff. He and his wife were a really wonderful & nice couple to know. I met them via my mom, Nora Walters who helped take care of the mother that was staying with them. My deepest sympathy and prayers to all of the family and friends of theirs.

We lived in Paramount for many years and Donald was such a nice man and a good neighbor. He always had a smile and a good word. We always enjoyed our chats with him. It was such a familiar sight to drive by his house and see him working in the yard. He was so devoted to Janet and he loved his family. We hope your memories will help to bring you peace and comfort.
