We were saddened to hear of the passing of Avis. Avis was always smiling and full of life.

Look to the Hills from whence comes your health.

Avis will truly be missed. When sadness overcomes you sit and reflect on all fond memories of Avis, surely they will inspire you.

We will be praying that God comfort & strength you doing your hour of breavement.
