We were so shocked and saddened to hear of Averys death. We are new in town moving here 2 years ago. Avery was on my bowling team and he was a joy to play with, we will miss him dearly. Unfortunately we are out of town at the moment so will not be attending funeral. Our sympathies to his family.

Aunt Gloria,
You are in my thoughts at this time as you grieve the loss of Avery.
Fifty-eight years together is a lot of memories.
To Kelly and family also my heartfelt sympathies.

So many thoughts and memories of a man who loved his LORD and was anxious to head HOME -It was said that he wished to go with his boots on and working in the woods-well I am guessing with his boots on and setting on a tractor was the next best thing. His church family will miss him as will his own family BUT we all have memories to share that will bring a smile to our faces even amidst the times of sorrow. God Bless you, Gloria, Kelly and family members at this difficult time.
