What a wonderful woman to know as a child. She taught us so much about the man, his actions, and the ever-ringing consequences of man's choices upon local nature. She gave so much back into Woodside, was great and will be missed.

Ollie Mayer's acheivements has everlasting effect on those who knew and admired her. Henry and Ollie's dedications to preserve the nature and to provide health care made a difference in lives of many who live in San Mateo County. I am one of them!
