Randy and Marvin we are so sorry of the loss of your mother. We have many memories of Aunt Ava and Uncle June, particularly when they would come to Perry to mom and dads house, lots of good memories. So glad we got to see her at the last Watts reunion in Ottawa Forest park, memories flooded in. We are on vacation so will not be able to attend the service but our prayers will be with you and your families. Hope to see you at another reunion soon. God Bless. Earl and Sue

I'm sorry to hear about Ava, but I know she will be happy now. I have a lot of memories of Aunt Ava and Uncle June as a younger child. I especially remember her love of roller skating. My deepest sympathies to Randy and Marvin and their families. I'm probably unable to make the service, but my thoughts will be there this day. God Bless.
