It has been such a long and hard year without you. So many times I have wished that I could talk to you about something, get your advice, hear your laugh or just get a hug. I love and miss you.
I only met Jim 15 years ago. He was responsible for getting me a job at Oriana House. At that time I only knew him as a name. He had a great sense of humor. He also became a surrogate father to my daughter Dawn Lavensky. He was there for her in a number life's milestones. I love and respect him for all the things he was in our lives.
A loving uncle. A wise mind. A great wit. A devoted son. A wonderful boss. A just and honest soul. I will truly miss your laughter. May God take good care of you Jim.
To Mr. Mcavoy Family, I am so sorry for your loss. I loved this man who was my teacher at Akron U. Keep them all in order up there I know you can do it.
Love, Anne Berrodin

Dear McAvoy Family...
My deepest sympathies to your family. Jim is a great man that I had come to know and admire very much. He would always share a joke or a kind word of encouragement when ever we spoke. Although I knew him only briefly, I had respected him and his kind heart. His gentle and soft spoken demeanor was just a small part of his presence that touched my life. My prayers remain with your family ...
The McGee family would like to extend our prayers and blessings to the family during this difficult time God Bless!

Dear Ron, Ellen and other family members,
Marilyn and I extend our deepest sympathy for the loss of your brother and your Uncle Jim. As you know, he was my dear friend for 75 years, and it's hard for me to accept the fact that he has left us. You are all in our thoughts and prayers, and we will treasure the many good memories. Sincerely, with our love.
