My sympathy to you, Bob, and to Betty, Kathy and Jerry. I spent many happy times, growing up, at Aunt Graces with all of you. So many good memories. Ava will be missed.

I will always remember Ava as being so sweet and kind. She really touched all of our hearts that knew her. My thoughts go out to her family at this difficult time.
