  1. If it had not been for Hack Ayers i could never have gotten my first house. And I believe that it was a big stepping stone for our lives. We were a couple thousand short. But he sat it up. We made our bank payment and then a $75 to his office. I never once would have even been late on that I was so respectful of what he did. This was over 30 years now. We paid $24’900 for that house. Only with his help. He was the best of Campbell County and will be remembered. God bless him.
