A Lifetime, a Legacy
Paul Voetman and Lynn Aase both lived at Hammer for more than 40 years and were the best of friends. They were so close that people would often comment that they seemed like "an old married couple," especially when Lynn would finish Paul's sentences for him. After living full and meaningful lives together, they both passed away just weeks apart.
After Lynn and Paul first moved to Hammer in the late 1950's and early 60's, their families were very involved with their lives and the organization as a whole. They generously helped to create comfortable homes and secure futures, not only for Lynn and Paul, but for many other individuals served by Hammer. The Voetman and Aase families believed in Hammer's mission so strongly that they made plans to continue their support even after death by naming Hammer as a beneficiary in their respective wills.
Many generous individuals have helped us to create full and meaningful lives for those we serve by naming Hammer in their will or trust. Some of these gifts are designated to be made after someone we serve has passed away.
