  1. It was my pleasure to have known Mary Hayashida. She was always helpful and truly cared about others. Her love of her family was evident with the pride in her voice whenever she visited with me about them. She will be missed. My condolences and love go out to your family at this time.

  2. Jeff and Fred… We were sorry to read about your mothers death…Both she and
    your father meant so much to us during our Ft Garland days…Unfortunately time and miles build a barrier of not being able to stay in contact with those friends who were so much a part of our life…It was a honor to be able to call your parents our friends and we will always value the memories of the good times we had with them. I sincerely hope our paths cross with you again. Our love and best wishes to you and your families……….Harold and Mary Zearley

  4. Dear Hayashida family,
    I want to express to you what a great loss this is to me and so many of us at Amazing Grace Fellowship; that is where I got to know Mary. Mary was an true friend to me and so many at our church and we are going to miss her. She was a giver of prayer to so many and you could always count on her smiling face on Sunday morning. My husband and I spent lots of time talking with Mary as we folded church news letters and got to know her very well. She loved her family and spoke highly of them. We know she trusted in the Lord and today she is celebrating with him. May God bless you as you morn your loss. One more candle burns brighter in Heaven tonight and forever more. God Bless you all.
