Since everybody is getting involved with this very interesting subject, I will also!I am Noel Layer, son of D.J."Ben Layer" who was tragically murdered in the robbery in a small Galveston corner store when I was 13 years old. He was the most kind and wonderful person I could have ever had as a father.He was married to Violet Cambiano Layer. I think of him every day as his death changed me and my brother James' life forever! I live in Galveston and I am married to Janis Wolf Layer! We have three children and the oldest Lindsay is a honor grad fron UT. Haley is 15, Nicolas is 12. my grandfather and I visited only about 3 times in my life and I will othen daydream of there wonderful farm and the stocked fishing pond I would fish in whenever I went to Cooper. He was married to Dora who I never met as she had already passed when I was born. My grandfather remarried before he passed away, to a very sweet women named Maude! The last time I saw my Grandfather was at my fathers funeral, and met Narvil and Robbie for the first and last time. This is very interesting to me after all this time as I am 54 years old now and have never met a Layer since my fathers death. I am also a Prostate Cancer ssurviver if anyone needs that that medical information. My father was killed at the early age of 50 I never knew if I had any risk factors inherited from him, so please have your annual exams just in case, because if it is caught early , there is a wonderful life after prostate cancer. Please stay in touch! thanks to all who have shared information and I encourage all to continue.
