Ed and I were saddened to hear of Aunt Avenell's death. I have fond memories of all the Christmas days we spent at her house. My Dad often spoke of going to visit her and Ellery. He really enjoyed popping in for a visit as often as he could. We will be thinking of you and keep you in our prayers. Love, Cheryl and Ed McKee
