Grandma, I so miss you beyond words, I feel so blessed & proud to have had you as my beloved grandmother. You truly have taught me things that I'll never forget. You'll forever be my very own personal angel even though I had to share you with countless others who shared the same sentiments.

Kind and loving. I remember you from my days growing up - you all were our neighbors across the alley. So glad I got to see you a couple of years ago.

Sister Mary Avery was a SWEET, KIND WOMAN OF GOD.

It was a blessing to know her. She was an usher at church and everything she did, she did with a warm smile. We pray God's comfort over her family during this time. Know that she set an EXAMPLE of a true Saint of God. We will continue to keep you in our prayers.
